St Georges Greenland Senior Boys School sent a two weeks notice into the opening week, without giving the boys enough time to adjust, thus 60 boys were turned down today when they reported back to school, among them were 16 students who had registered for KCSE this year.

The main reason that led to conversion of the school is unruly nature of the boys, this is according to the school founder  Mr. George Gichimo .
