There has been looming tension spreading that schools could not be reopened following increasing corona cases witnessed in the country. However, during the Labor Day celebrations at State House, all Kenyans had a reason to smile when President Uhuru Kenyatta lifted some of the measures including cessation of movement into and out of the earlier locked counties.
Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta on a positive note assured Kenyans and all stakeholders in the Ministry of Education that the school calendar will remain the same as planned. This is to means that all primary and secondary schools will reopen on May 10 for the 2020 third term.
However, some parents have been complaining that the calendar puts pressure and a burden on them since the breaks between the school terms are too short. This means that they are not given ample time to look for school fees and other learning resources needed by their children.
For the MoE to recover the time lost during the Covid 19 pandemic and to bring back the normal calendar by the beginning of the year 2023, here are the revised term dates; Term 3 starts on May 10, 2021, and ends on July 16, 2021. Term 1 starts on July 26, 2021, and ends on October 1, 2021. Term 2 starts on October 11 and ends on December 23. Term 3 of the 2021 academic calendar starts on January 3, 2022, and ends on March 4, 2022.
The 2021 National final exam for both KCPE and KCSE is scheduled to start on March 7 and ends on April 1, 2022. Parents are therefore advised in advance to put in more effort to ensure the children do not face school fees problems.
