Magoha made some directives concerning the safe resumption of learning in the country, the examination calendar and transition to other classes.

All schools will reopen fully on January 4th 2021. This will apply to all continuing PP1 & 2; Grade 1, 2 and 3; Class 5, 6 and 7; and Form 1, 2 and 3 learners. The 4 year-olds will join PP1 in July 2021
Pre Primary 1 & 2; Grade 1, 2 & 3; Class 5, 6 & 7; and Form 1, 2 & 3 learners will start their Term 2 on 4th January, 2021 and end on 19th March 2021 together with the Grade 4 and candidate classes (Class 8 and Form 4).

Learners, except Class 8 and Form 4 candidates, will proceed for a 7-week holiday to allow for KCPE and KCSE examinations administration and marking.

Despite of the government’s announcement to reopen schools in the country come next it will not be possible to meet the social distance and other health precautions.

Already the candidates in the various schools have started testing positive and we have lost the lives of both teachers and students.

It’s advisable for the government to ensure that the Learners are safe before re-opening in January.
