The name of my secondary school is called Miathene Boys Secondary school.The school is located in the Eastern part of Kenya i,e about 100 miles from the capital city of Kenya -Nairobi at a place called Meru.

Generally the main economic activities of the local people of Meru are farmers where they plant crops like coffee,tea,bananas,potatoes,rice and horticultural crops.Also they do dairy farming.

Our school has a total student population of 1156 students.Being in form 1, we have a total of 5 form 1 streams-classrooms subdivided as stream J,K,L,M and N where i belong to stream N.

Our school being a boarding school has a total of 5 dormitories named as Tsavo,Serengeti,Nakuru,Masai Mara and Amboseli.The names are dirived from some of our East Africa major national parks where Meru too has some tourist attraction features like the slopes of Mount Kenya ,nearness to the Equator etc.
