Kshs 8500 Additional School Fees To Be Paid By Parents Jan 2023

Subsidy removal on school fees

Parents who have their children in boarding high schools will have to dig deeper into their pockets to gather for school fees beginning January 2023. This is as a result of the ministry of Education doing away with school fee subsidy which was introduced in 2020 to gather for the adverse effects caused by Covid 19 pandemic. It was noted the ministry had decreased the fees by Ksh 8,500.

According to the ministry of education circular, parents will have to pay ksh 53,554 from the previous ksh 45,054 for students in national schools , kshs 45,054 from ksh 35,035 for students in Extra county schools, and ksh 40,535 from ksh 35,000 for students in the county and sub county boarding secondary schools.

According to the Education PS Julius Jean, the rules will apply to specific counties which includes Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisumu, Nyeri, Thika, and Eldoret according to the circular.

The new policy applies to only boarding secondary schools as the day secondary school parents will continue to pay for just lunch costs. The government will settle their ksh 22,400 tuition charges and other costs.
