The Ministry of Education postpones Schools reopening date

Published on

The Ministry of Education has announced a postponement of school reopening dates for the second term, extending the ongoing holidays by a week due to the heavy ongoing rains.

Through a press release signed by Dr. Ezekiel Machogu, the Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Education, the government has decided to shift the starting date from Monday, April 29, to Monday, May 6, 2024.

Following a comprehensive analysis of the circumstances reported from several Kenyan schools, the ministry concluded that the prevailing weather conditions made it impossible to ensure the safety of both pupils and staff.

The devastating effects of the rains in some of the schools are so severe that it will be imprudent to risk the lives of learners and staff before water-tight measures are put in place,” stated the Ministry in their press statement.



The goal is to ensure that when students do return to school, they come back to a safe and secure learning environment.
