All Secondary and Primary Schools To Reopen On This Date This Month

Students in the Republic of Kenya are currently enjoying their festive season after the Ministry of Education led by the Education Cabinet Secretary, Honourable Ombaki Ezekiel Machogu gave them a close to two months holiday back on the 25th of November 2022.

This can be termed to be the longest holiday break ever since the disruption of the school calendar back in the first quarter, March of the year 2020 that led to abrupt closure of schools awaiting further communication on opening dates.

Luckily, the schools were later reopened but with major changes on opening and closing dates interrupting the normal school calendar. The Ministry of Education worked hand in hand with the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development to strategise away of recovering lost time and a bid in bringing the school calendar back to normal which they have now achieved.

Now, according to the updated school calendar, all the pre-primary, primary and secondary schools in the Republic of Kenya will reopen on 23rd January 2023, learn for thirteen weeks and then close on April 21, 2023. The students will also enjoy a half term break from 23rd to 26th March 2023. The students will then have a three weeks holiday break as from 22nd April 2023 to 7th May 2023.

The second term will then run for another 13 weeks from 8th May 2023 to 11th August 2023. Students will break for a three days half term holiday from 29th June to 2nd July 2023. After completion of the 13 weeks of second term, students will proceed for August holiday break of two weeks from 12th August 2023 to 27th August 2023.
