Good News Ahead Of School Reopening Next Week As Government Releases Sh17.8 Billion

School heads now have a reason to smile after the Ministry of Education released funds for the second term, yet to commence early next week. The Sh17.8 billion, according to Basic Education PS Jwan Julius, is expected to reflect on school accounts as of the 8th of October.

“We have made sure that the money reaches schools before opening day next week,” said Jwan during a workshop on education Reforms in the country at Dairy Training Institute at Naivasha.

About Sh15.8 billion will go towards Free Day Secondary School to cater for second term fees for continuing students and also alleviate pending bills for Form 1s while Sh2.2 billion will cater for Free Primary Education.

“We’ve been talking with relevant agencies and we have been assured that the money will be in schools’ account by Friday,” PS for Early Learning and Basic Education Dr Julius Jwan address the participants.

Also present at the occasion was the Kenya Secondary School Head Association chair, Mr Kahi Indimuli, who urged parents to pay school fees in time to give school managers ample time to run the school.
