After the disruption caused by COVID-19, the Ministry of Education has announced the school calendar for the coming year.
“The Covid-19 outbreak caused a disruption in the calendar. But in January 2023, the calendar will return to normal, according to Education PS Julius Jwan.
With the introduction of the new Coronavirus in 2020, the conventional calendar was altered.
Since March 2020, kids have been required to stay at home in order to stop the virus’ spread.
According to Jwan, all pre-primary, primary, and secondary schools will begin classes on January 23 and end 13 weeks later on April 21.
The second semester of the teacher training institutions will begin on August 29 after their first term ended on December 2.
Affected students will only have two weeks off in April instead of the usual four weeks off while the ministry returns to its regular timetable because the calendar begins in late January.
Prekindergarten, primary, and secondary schools will all have a two-week break in August from 12 to 27.
While teacher training institutions will be closed from August 12 to September 1 for three weeks.
The KCPE national exams will take place from November 6 to November 9, and the three-week KCSE exam will start on November 10 and last until December 1.
After their third term, students will have a two-month break starting on November 3 into the next year.
All field officials were admonished by Jwan to see that the affected institutions were made aware of the changes.
