Class Hours Change Ahead of School Reopening, Here is the New Class Hours by Ministry of Education

Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang has instructed schools to stick to the originally set school calendars despite the extended closure caused by floods.

In a circular to school heads, Kipsang directed schools to develop plans to recover the lost time due to the delayed reopening.

The Ministry has also advised schools to adjust learning hours if heavy rains affecting the country continue to disrupt learning.

However, schools must adhere to the 6 am to 6 pm transportation guidelines.

This directive follows Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu’s statement that the government might extend the second term to compensate for the prolonged closure.

Machogu suggested a reduction in the August holiday to make up for lost time.

Nevertheless, the recent directive came after education stakeholders expressed concerns that shortening the second term holiday would impact the scheduled music festival in August.

Schools are scheduled to reopen on Monday, May 13, following the flood-induced closure. Students will have six weeks of learning before the half-term break from June 20 to June 23.

The second half of the term will commence on August 5, with a three-week holiday slated for August.
