Revised School Calendar As Half Term Ends, Double Intake Dilemma.

Education CS professor George Magoha in a past function.

Learners in both primary and secondary schools will from tommorow resume their Studies after a short halfterm break which lapses today.

The resumption will be happening amidst fears of a fourth wave of covid-19 infections projected to happen in July.

However, the infections and positivity rates for the past few days should embolden the education stakeholders to go on with the planned academic activities without fear of disruptions.

According to figures by the ministry of health for Sunday 6, the country recorded 166 new COVID-19 cases from a sample size of 3,561 tested marking a positivity rate of 4.7%.

Now as learners resume their Studies tommorow, the remaining time is very short meant to assist teachers in clearing syllabus to allow for transition.

There are only six weeks remaining before the end of term three which will conclude with end year exams.

Due to the short time remaining, the CS education professor George magoha has already warned schools against hosting any activity within their compounds.

Now below are the remaining term dates according to the academic calendar by the ministry of education crafted to ensure learners recover the lost time.

Schools will close Officially on July 17 for a one week break and resume on July 26, a time when grade four and form one are supposed to report.

Form ones will know the schools they will join by June 15 when they will be able to download their letters of invitation.

Next year will see the current form twos and form threes sit for their final exams. The same case applies to the current class six and seven.

The current grade four who are under CBC will be joining their junior secondary school in January 2023. At the same time, the current class six will be joining form one meaning there will be a double intake.

Double intake will force secondary schools to look for more space for the two sets of learners.
