History

The Holy Trinity Secondary School is a boy’s Catholic institution established in September 1964. The school is located in the west end of Kenema town, which is the Provincial Headquarter Town of the Eastern Region in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

This School is under the proprietorship of the Bishop of Kenema. The School was established out of the dire need to provide Western Education for young boys of the Eastern region, and Kenema in particular.

The late Rev. Fr. S.B. O’Sullivan C.S.Sp. was the first principal. He was succeeded by late Rev. Fr. Michael Corbett C.S. Sp., late Rev. Fr. Macnamara C.S.Sp., and late Rev. Fr. Mac-Mahon C. S. Sp., respectively. These Holy Ghost Priests, now Spiritans, were all great pioneers of education in Sierra Leone, and Holy Trinity Secondary School has fond memories of them.

When the late Rev. Fr. Mac-Mahon resigned in August 1978, the late Peter Joseph Gogra become the first Sierra Leonean to be appointed acting Principal of the School. He was confirmed as substantive principal in September 1981, a position he held untill his death in May 2010.

During his tenure of office, he worked with Mr. Septimus S. Vandi as his Vice Principle on to the time when the school was dived into Senior and Junior Secondary. Mr. Septimus was then raised to the status of principal for the Junior Secondary School in 2006, and Mr. Paul J. Brima became his Vice Principal.

With the death of Mr. Peter J. Gogra in 2010, Mr. Mark M. Gondo, who was his Vice Principal, was appointed as acting principal, and Mr. Peter J. Sandi became the acting Vice Principal.

The school operates both Junior Secondary (JSS) and a Senior Secondary School (SSS) and has a population of 2,300(two thousand three hundred) pupils. The school has 24 (twenty-four) class-rooms, housed in five (5) solid concrete buildings. These classrooms were built according to specifications laid down by the UN in the early 1960s.The school has laboratory facilities for each of the basic sciences, namely, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

The school has a wood work workshop. This workshop has a large working area, a store for tools, a timber store, and a classroom. The workshop also has machines the lathe machine the branding machine, the ripping saw machine and band saw machine.

The school has other facilities which were provided by the Catholic Relief Service (CRS): one such facility is a well equipped with an immersion pump. The pump is electrically operated and it can lift water from the well into three overhead 800 gallon tanks high up on a concrete platform. In times of the public power failure, a 2.5KVA generator is used to power the pumping machine. Recently, the Sierra Leone water company has built a modern toilet facility for the school, with an overhead tank that will supply water to the toilets. Presently the school has started a project to wall off the entire school grounds.
