*MoE has today released a new school calendar indicating several changes after inclusion of term 2 half-term and continued students unrests*

The CS for education, Professor Magoha last year on 16th November 2020 announced the new academic school calendar for all learners in pre-primary, primary, and secondary schools in Kenya.

 

Speaking after the stakeholders’ meeting in Nairobi, the CS announced that they have reached on an agreement that all basic learning institutions were to resume full face-to-face learning on January 4th, 2021, for Term 2 which was adversely interfered with by the out Break of covid19 in march.


Education can be defined as the total process of developing human abilities and behavior hence it is important that every Kenyan child has access to education in which the government has buttressed making it more affordable as years continue to advance.

 

Though the education sector was affected due to the outbreak of Covid-19 disease in the country last year forcing all learning institutions to be closed for ten months, a new school calendar that was made at the onset of this year is currently guiding all academic activities and the normal school calendar is set to be achieved on 2023.

The primary and secondary schools resumed second term activities last week on 24th Tuesday and according to the new school calendar, the schools will terminate term two academic syllabus on 24th December and then break for a short Christmas holiday until 2nd January 2022.
