Primary and junior schools to start athletics 2 weeks after midterm break

Primary and junior schools will start their first term athletic competitions two weeks after resuming from the half term break.

Primary, junior and secondary schools will break for mid term on 28th February and resume on 3rd March 2024.

However unlike last year where junior school learners were mixed with those in primary schools, beginning this year the Grade 7 and 8 learners will have their own competition separate from the primary school section.

The athletic events will involve sprints, middle and long distance races, relays, jumps and throws.

Both primary and junior school learners will start from cluster level before proceeding to zonal, sub-county, county, regional and finally to national level.

School games teachers have attended their zonal clinics where they get training and sensitized on the upcoming school competitions.

County, Regional and National clinics will start from End March to Early April. The National Clinics will be done in Nyeri from 8th to 11th April 2024.
