School Reopening: OCTOBER 26th 2020
After months of closure, Kenya’s schools adjust to reopening
In July 2020, the Kenyan Gov’t announced that schools across the country would stay closed for the rest of the year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
During this week in October,we have seen the Gov’t announce the reopening of schools. We welcome the Ministry of Education’s announcement that schools in Kenya will reopen from 12 October, starting with Grade 4, Class 8 and Form 4. The closure of schools in March this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, interrupted learning for over 17 million students who missed more than six months of formal education.
We urge parents to bring children back to school as their classes reopen and to continue supporting their learning.
