Brainston Academy has finally called it quits over what they termed careful deliberations following lengthy effects of Covide-19.
In a painful letter to parents Brainston Academy management said they have reached the decision to permanently close the school and therefore parents should look for other schools to take their children.
This comes at a time when KPSA chairman Peter Ndolo had raised eyebrows that more than a hundred private schools may not reopen when schools resume January 2021.
Private schools under KPSA umbrella had written to government for approval of kshs. 7 billion to help in management and running of the schools.
The government has agreed to give the kshs 7 billion to bail out the staggering private schools.
Brainston Academy is among the few which have announced permanent closure over harsh effects of Covid-19.
Below is the letter written by Brainston Academy Githurai to parents.

All the relevant Ministry of Education offices have been informed of the decision and the requirements for
closure forwarded to them. We will communicate to you when you can come and pick up any items that you may have left in school,
We sincerely thank you for your support and wish you and your children the best as they continue to pursue their education.
