Saturday August 10, 2019-The Ministry of Education has postponed the opening dates for all schools for term three by a week.
In a circular to all Regional Directors of Education, 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.
This comes even as there still exisits friction between teachers and George Magoha-led Ministry over the implementation of the new curriculum.
