To combat the spread of Covid-19, the government ordered school closures in 2020.
The schools were closed for ten months before reopening in January 2021. This prompted the Ministry of Education to implement a hurried academic calendar in order to help students make up for lost time.
Apart from Form Four students who are taking their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exam, the rest of the students are on a long holiday break that will end in April.
When classes resume in April, the 2022 academic year will be jam-packed, with only one-week breaks in July, August, and September before the year concludes in November. The regular calendar will resume in January of the following year.
“I thank all stakeholders who have given us all the support in negotiating this difficult period, especially teachers who have had to work extra hard to ensure learners covered the syllabus within the short timelines.”
