Kenya Government Postpones School Opening Date

Parents with school fees arrears to be blacklisted

Third term in the academic calendar for all schools in Kenya has been cut short by the Ministry of Education, as the August holiday has been extended by a week.

All region 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 as detailed in the circular by the ministry.

This was reached after the census dates scheduled for August 24 and 25, 2019 clashed with the school opening dates, according to the Ministry of Education.

“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,” reads the circular.
