Schools to Reopen on 10th May 2021 as earlier scheduled, sporting activities in schools to relaunch

President Uhuru Kenyatta has confirmed that all educational institutions in the country, at all levels of education, will be reopened in line with the Department of Education’s calendar.
At the same time, the Head of State has announced that sport will re-launch in all educational institutions.
“Our educational institutions at all levels will be reopened in line with the calendar issued by the Department of Education,” said President Kenyatta and the Department of Sport.
Schools will therefore reopen on May 10 for the Third Term, as previously announced by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.
This period will end on July 16 under the new calendar, which includes four quarters of schools in one year instead of the usual three to make up for lost time by 2020.
The students will then be taking a week off before returning on session.
Students will have another one-week break from October 2 to October 10 before returning the next day for the second term, which will continue until December 23.
Before returning to the regular calendar in January 2023, there will be four names in 2022.
Speaking on Saturday in celebration of Madaraka day, the Head of State said the COVID-19 infection has been declining in the country since new measures were taken.
According to President Kenyatta, the closure of five districts, which affected Nairobi, Kiambu, Machakos, Kajiado, and Nakuru, resulted in a 74% drop in the number of cases.
“When I issued the second Public Order for 2021 in March, announcing the steps to be taken, our COVID-19 cases in Nairobi were 56,815. “Uhuru’s case has now dropped to less than 15,000 in April, meaning a 74% reduction,” Uhuru said.
