TOUGH GUIDELINES MORE HEADACHE IN SCHOOLS AS THE MINISTRY MOUNTS PRESSURE

In a circular to school heads, Kipsang instead directed schools to devise a plan to recover the time lost due to delays in schools’ reopening.

The Ministry also asked schools to adjust learning hours should the ongoing nationwide heavy rains affect learning.

Schools have, however, been directed to maintain 6am to 6pm guidelines as far as school transportation is concerned.

The latest directive by the PS comes after Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu noted that the government would consider second term extension owing to the extended closure.

He had indicated that the government would consider reducing the August holiday by a few days to accommodate the coverage of the syllabus.

“It has been two weeks (extended closure of schools). We will look at it, particularly for those in From Four, and see how we can recover by extending the term for a few days,” Machogu stated on Thursday.

Nonetheless, it was revealed that the latest changes were issued upon the request of education stakeholders who noted that reducing the term two holiday dates would affect the music festival which is slated for August.

Schools are set to reopen on Monday, May 13 after forced closure that was necessitated by floods

The students will learn for six weeks before breaking for the half-term from June 20 to June 23.

Learners will resume for the second half of the second term on August 5. The August holiday is slated to take up three weeks.
