Government Pushes School Opening Dates


The Ministry of Education has postponed the opening dates for all schools for term three by a week.

PS Belio Kipsang has stated in a circular written to all Regional Directors of Education that schools, which were earlier scheduled to open on August 26, will now open on September 2 and close on October 25, 2019.

According to the Ministry, the decision was reached after the census dates scheduled for August 24 and 25, 2019 coincided with the school opening dates.

“For the forthcoming census to be successful, it is the desire of the National Bureau of Statistics that there be minimum movements of the population so that they may get as many people as possible in conventional households,” read the circular
