Education CS George Magoha has told Primary and Secondary School students and parents to be ready for the reopening of schools next month.
Magoha who was speaking during the opening of an exam container in Kiambu town today announced that students would most likely be required to return to school on Monday, May 10.
The CS maintained that despite the suspension of learning occasioned by a recent surge in Covid-19 infections, the school calendar may not be adversely affected as the curve appears to be flattening.
“Programming for the calendar year, I am leap frogging forward and hoping that since it seems like the pandemic is starting to flatten, there may be no need for me to summon the stake holders to look afresh at the time table.
“The timetable remains as we had decided earlier in the year and by the grace of God, children will come to school at the time we said they should come to school,” stated Magoha.
On March 26, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced the suspension of all physical learning activities until further notice after the country recorded a spike in Covid-19 cases in the country.
At the time, all institutions, from Kindergarten to tertiary, that were in session were shut down sparing students who were sitting for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).
“In respect to education in Kenya there shall be immediate suspension of all on-going physical learning in all our institutions including universities and tertiary and vocational colleges, other than for candidates sitting for the examinations and those in medical training institutions until otherwise notified,” Uhuru directed at the time.
