After the inception of the first case of Covid-19 in March last year, almost every other activities came to a stand still as a way of controlling the spread of the virus. One of such activities is co-curriculum in schools.
The measures by the government, has really helped to control the virus even though not 100%.
For instance, schools are now on with only academics going on in classrooms without co curriculum activities.
Due to that, primary school heads have now come up asking the government to allow schools to conduct sporting events.
They have argued that already pupils are interacting freely in the wake of the Covid-19. The Kenya Primary School Headteachers Association, Kepsha, chair, Mr Johnson Nzioka added that many talented learners are leaving schools before realising their full potential.
Mr Nzioka revealed that pupils should be now allowed to participate in games since even at the national level, sporting events have resumed.
He added that for the sporting activities to begin, clear protocols should be realised as directed by the ministry of health.
According to Mr Nzioka, fields can be appropriately marked to ensure that pupils or trainees play different games without coming into contact with one another.
"We are requesting the government to allow the resumption of extra curricular activities because the children are already interacting," he said.
This sounds good news to learners since they will have to realise their potentials in sports activities..
