Plans Underway To Change School Calendar. Here is the link to the current one: 2022 Official School Calendar

The fast-approaching national elections on the 9th of August this year, 2022 have necessitated the Ministry of Education (MOE) officials to plan on changing the earlier issued school calendar.

Earlier the ministry of education had issued the 2022 School Calendar that had planned the learners’ half-term break for the second term to fall on the 11th of August 2022. This would be precisely two days after the forthcoming 9th August general election implying that the schools will be in session on the D-day: Voting Day.

Consequently, the ministry of education officials has communicated the need to adjust the calendar to ensure that learners take their half-term break before the election date. This will enable the institutions to be used as polling centers.

Following the repeat presidential election precedent set on the 26th of October, 2017, officials from the ministry of education have maintained that all schools must be closed during the election dates to pave way for the national exercise. This is in the background that most schools if not all are used as polling centers.

Officials observed that ” During the repeat presidential election, the ministry made a slight adjustment to the school calendar to accommodate the exercise. It will be the case this year since the elections will be held in the middle of the term so there is no cause for alarm”

In the 20217 August 8 elections, Schools were closed earlier than scheduled to allow IEBC to use the institutions voting and tallying centers.

While speaking on the same, the education Cabinet Secretary, Professor George Magoha has warned against the destruction of school property during the polling period.

A revised school program for the current year shows that the Second term commences on July 11 and runs for 10 weeks until September 16 while the third term will start on September 26 and run-up to the November 25th.

It is obvious that as the country prepares for the general elections, Learning institutions are also rushing against time to cover most of their syllabus at least by the time the 9th August General election is held.
