It’s Back To School


Primary and secondary schools across the country report back to school today after a two-week break to pave way for the August 9 general elections.

The schools were closed abruptly to avoid disruptions by the political environment upon the declaration of the election results.

Regarding the effect of the breaks on the normal school calendar, education cabinet secretary George Magoha on Wednesday said the learning schedule would not be extended.

According to the CS, schools will have to adapt to the changes to ensure that learners who will sit for the national exams in November are done with the syllabus.

The second half of the term is expected to run until September 16 according to the revised Ministry of Education calendar set to cover the lost time during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Back-to-school activities will go on as planned since normalcy has been restored in the country after the announcement of the August general elections which saw chaos in some parts of the country.

Magoha said schools will not close again even if the Supreme Court orders a rerun of the presidential polls which are set to be challenged in court within the next seven days by the Azimio flagbearer and Ruto’s main challenger Raila Odinga.
