The Education Task-force selected by Education CS Prof George Magoha to advise on school reopening has now settled on October 19th as the date for reopening of all basic institutions of learning.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has already ordered teachers back to class next Monday 28th September to prepare for reopening of schools.
TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia said teachers should report back to schools to prepare for the eventual reopening of the basic learning institutions between now and Monday 28th of September.
“The innovative sense that you have always had so that both parents and learners are assured of safety and civic assurance when schools reopen. And in this regard we have deliberated on this as a committee and we are therefore asking our teachers to report back to schools on Monday 28th to prepare for the eventual opening of schools. So our teachers can report any day between now and Monday 28th September to prepare for the eventual reopening,” said Dr. Nancy Macharia.
The Task-force led by it’s chair Dr. Sarah Ruto has presented its report officially to the Education CS today Monday.
The experts have recommended phased reopening of the primary and secondary schools with phase one reopening to take place in October 19th and to include class seven and eight as well as form three and four classes.
The Task-force Phase two reopening recommends Pre-primary one and two, Grade one to three, Standard five and six and finally Form one and two classes to resume learning in November 2nd.
However CS Magoha has warned parents and media against interpreting this as school reopening cause they are not.
The Sarah led team of senior educators proposes to reorganise the academic calendar such that the second term starts in October and ends in November, and the third term starts in January and ends in March.
Thus the first term in the 2021 calendar will start in May or early June, meaning hundreds of thousands of children scheduled to join Early Child Development Education classes will be delayed for half a year.
The stakeholders also had another alternative proposal which is to reopen schools for all classes this October 19th and monitor programmes and health concerns thereafter.
Also in the proposal the candidate classes are to sit for their KCPE and KCSE exams in April 2021.
The Task force also recommends re-ogarnization of school calendar to start in June and no repetition of classes when learning resumes.
However during the stakeholders meeting at KICD buildings Nairobi, the CS had said school reopening date will be known after a mega stakeholders meeting on September 25th.
Already the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) is developing assessment tools that will be sent to schools to gauge learners’ entry behaviour before learning takes off.
All assessments will be done in schools where teachers will mark and upload the scores onto the Knec portal.
On Friday Prof George Magoha said that teachers should start preparing to report to their schools as the ministry prepares to receive the report on Monday from a taskforce established earlier this week to look at preparedness of learning institutions.
Addressing the media after assessing the preparedness of Mawego Technical Training Institute in Homabay County, the CS said that from his personal observation, Covid-19 curve has started to flatten.
“From what I have observed, the curve is flattening and as a ministry we are in the process of relooking at our systems so that to get prepared. The report for technical and vocational institutions is ready and on Monday we will wait to receive the other reports from the taskforce and take them to another level for consideration before a concrete decision can be made,” Prof Magoha said.
“Teachers can start to prepare to report back to their schools to make them habitable before students report. And at that time, we will have phased re-opening with priority given to exam classes. In fact technical colleges are likely to re-open soon,” he said.
Schools were closed in March after the first case of Covid-19 was confirmed in Kenya, and the government had set January 2021 as the date for re-opening.
Earlier this week the Ministry issued health guidelines for safe reopening of schools. In the 50-page document highlighting the guidelines, institutions will be required to develop policies and procedures suitable in their own environment to enable smooth reopening of the institution.
Also, learning institutions will have to adjust timetable and learning pedagogy to ensure coverage of syllabus without straining learners.
Every school will have to map an emergency health facility that is within 10 km and collaborate with County government to have some health personnel assigned to the institution for regular health monitoring and sensitizations.
For boarding schools, social distancing must be observed with double-decker beds having a one-metre distance between occupants.
“All learning institutions should have adequate, clean and well maintained toilets at a ratio of 1 door to 25 girls and 1 door to 30 boys with a urinal. Toilets should be disinfected three times a day,” the guidelines read in part.
Learners will also be required to observe a one-metre social distancing in classes and laboratories.
Furniture should be cleaned and disinfected daily.
Institutional food handlers and cleaners will be required to have personal protective equipment including gloves, apron and facemasks.
Also, all the food handlers should have the requisite food handling certificates and in addition be screened for Covid- 19 symptoms before being allowed to handle food.
“All food handlers shall undergo a symptomatic screening for Covid -19 on a daily basis; those with symptoms of Covid -19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, breathing difficulties, fatigue) should be allowed to seek medical attention,” the guidelines add.
Fields shall be appropriately marked to ensure learners/trainees play different games that avoid touching or holding.
Swimming should be halted in all educational institutions until the Covid-19 risk is at lowest level as shall be guided by the Ministry of Health.
Assemblies, inter institution competitions including games, drama, music ,sports and other events that create crowded conditions shall be suspended for the time being.
Institutions will hold class mini-assemblies to pray, pass health messages and make announcements.
“Activities that involve physical contact will be substituted by other activities that allow for safe physical distancing.
There shall be no gymnastics at all institutions level for the time being until advised by MoH,” added the Ministry.
“Availability of water remains crucial to support personal hygiene including drinking and hand washing with soap as a key preventive measure. Water should also be available for regular cleaning, laundry and other purposes,” adds the Ministry.
Learners, trainees and non- teaching staff temperatures shall be taken every day and records maintained.
All authorized visitors to the institution will have their temperatures taken and recorded. The records will include full names, telephone numbers and place of residence.
The institution may share the information with Ministry of Health for purpose of contact tracing if need arises.
Any person with temperature reading 37.5 °C and above will not be allowed to enter the institution.
In the event a Covid-19 case is detected, the information should be communicated immediately via established communication structure and there should be an immediate closure of the institution based on Ministry of Health advice to curb further spread of the virus.
“Any institution that does not implement these guidelines on social distancing and hygiene protocols as outlined to ensure safety and health of learners, trainees and staff will not be allowed to provide education services until when the necessary plans are put in place,” the document undersigned by Education PS Belio Kipsang concludes.

Good news indeed
The communities in Kenya are ready to work on schools. The govor is not ready to fund the changes yet they were funded under Covid19 kit. The more you keep us in darkness the more the money is embezzled by big elephants in my country. Who cursed my people Kenyans!
I would like to propose the reopening of schools… Let our children repeat…. Not all of them were exposed to online learning and others were affected by the floods na hawana mbele wala nyuma…… Next year is a better option… Because we are heading to holiday season and the normal school calendar states that schools close in October and break for the 2 month holiday …..and this comes as a shock to most parents because fees is an issue right now…
The curve has not flattened. The numbers are still reading over 100 infecrions over 24 hours from a very small sample tested. Let the candidates class open in October as they can observe the hygiene and physical distancing measures. When schools implement the hygiene measures for a larger population then the rest of rhe children can open in January.
I support this
I do not advise for the reopening of all classes, as we know,in every year, candidates are left in school, while the other classes break for holidays,which gives them time to study on their own with no disturbance, with this new calendar, their passing rate will surely decrease
Learners to start learning now is possible but very tricky ,, no school fees for the vulnerable ,, since parents relaxed when they had earlier thought that schools will re open in January ,, many girl students are now stressed up ,, taking note that most of the girls hv been pregnanted during this period ,,, anyway it can be possible ,,, but let us not risk if the curve is almost flattening we should patient enough ,,, how can we open schools when the number of those with Corona is over 5 thousandths who have not yet recovered ,,,,, when we closed with only one case in March ,,,,
To repeat how. Will fees be enough for some parentz
What of universities and colleges?
Why are we not mentioned
Next year is the best let the students repeat again,it would be better.
It is INDEED ages since the inception that schools should always be opened in January for first term, May for second term and September for third term, but things change with time.
I remember when I was still a student at Al-Azhar university, Cairo Egypt, there came a delegation of the parliamentary committee on education in 2009 to study some of the best practices being implemented elsewhere and compare it with the 8-4-4. I was lucky to meet some of the MPs (delegation) and other dignitaries at the party the Kenyan embassy in Egypt had hosted at the Nile Hilton hotel to commemorate Jamhuri Day, among them Dr. Amos Kimunya, Martha Karua, Alfred Odhiambo (my former MP of Butula, Busia) and Dr. Eseli Simiyu. I cannot recall the others. My MP by then, shared with me that the Egyptian system was the best and it would be good if it is adopted here in Kenya.
I believe it was from many of those journeys that a report to usher in the 2-6-3-3-3 was born. I saw it personally during my thirteen years stay in Egypt, and went through part of that system of education at high school and university and found it to be a good one.
I have the opinion the academic year to be changed to have a stroke (/) just the way we have the yearly financial budgets… (you hear of FY 2020/2021). And by the way, in case one was born on 9th September, doesn’t that person’s age commence counting from there, or should it be backdated or forwarded to the nearest January? I propose schools open in as soon as possible October/November so that it be factored to the duration students were in school from January to mid-March to form term one (1). Besides, I pray that the fees for that single month should be a fraction of the termly charges. Let December be holiday as usual and January-March be second (2nd) term. April will be holiday as usual then May-July be the third (3rd) term when those in class 8 and form 4 will do their KCPE in June and KCSE respectively beginning mid-June till mid- July and results be out by mid-August. Form 1 and university intake to follow next, and so, the new academic calendar would look like this without delay:
1st term: September-November (holiday in December)
2nd term: January-March (holiday in April)
3rd term: May-July (holiday in August)
In addition to this new calendar, I believe that it is also going to give a good opportunity in moving safely the national examinations materials to examination centers for both practical and theory, since the duration between the months of June to August are mainly cool and dry over most parts of the country except for some parts in the western region that report some rains, unlike what we have been seeing in rainy seasons in the past years.
I hope all stakeholders will find this to be applicable and that our students may not feel 2020 was a lost year. I am waiting to hear from you the Education CS, Prof. Magoha pronounce academic year 2020/2021, 2021/2022 and so on soon.
You may rush reopening of schools and end losing thousands of kids, we are not seeing the curve flattening at all, we are still getting over 100 positive cases from a small testing sample of a thousand. We parents are not going to take our kids back to school at this time,we are free to let our kids repeat than rather have them in graves,so please I urge u to sit and take this thing very seriously.
wahooo thats a good idea
Yes you are doing well but do not let primary and secondary to open schools this year they won’t concentrate to anything most of them will fail terribly when give them exams I only propose that let Universities and Colleges to go and continue with their studies remember if secondary schools will do there exams this year it means they will be expected to join colleges the coming year remember also the 2019 candidates haven’t reported to the university or colleges, we might get alot of jam next year when they will be joining. Please we should think twice
Is this real? Then when will Universities reopen please let me know?
I would to know whether the above news are real actually
They should allow our children to go back to school in January,all this confusion, what will be the academic calendar year? We had also planned for fees beginning January 2021 .Reconsider the decision.
I also recommend reopening be January, financial problem will kill us when we reopening now, the burden will be too hearvy for us.
Why Risk the lives of children first… This is not fair to a huge amount of parents since most have lost their jobs or their wages have been lowered..let the president open bars Kwanza and we take control of the situation..This a very confused country with confused leaders.. I hope our generation doesn’t make the mistake of choosing such people in such positions.. plus the proposal to have assesment test isn’t fair to all students since some of them live in the suburbs and don’t have the necessary material to access learning..GOD HELP THIS COUNTRY ??
Kindly let us wait up to January..is only 3 months..
Do you think these children are even anywhere near safety huku mtaani? its even safe at school.
that is were you g wrong
Is this a joke! WTH is this, I think you guys (M.O.E) y’all going crazy.
Untill the state declares that corona is over and parents are financialy stable, I think that would be the appropriate time to decide the official reopening date! C’mon….. some parents are struggling so hard to place food on the table….what about the God damn school fees. Have this in mind if education is the key….my niece wouldn’t have committed suicide due to employment frustrations, instead it would have been helpful if she was taught how to nature her talent and how to grow her skills and make herself useful in the nation, unlike when she had that masters paper but wasn’t lucky enough to get a job even after struggling so bad with her fees, simply ’cause she wasn’t well connected with ” big people” in the nation. I think it will be more helpful if you guys considered changing the system first, where it will be beneficial to all…. not a certain group of people. God bless our ” leaders” with adequate knowledge and open the eyes of the citizens.
I agreed with the parent that fee is the issue right now and also some learners have nothing to prepare for the schools reopening
I don’t think this will be a good a idea mainl because Corona is not over yet and Children from allover the country are going to meet in a place l am disappointed because just a slight decrease in the curve has caused you all to come to conclusions what if this blows on our kids corono is not over yet and these are teens and kids please make a decision where our children will know there safe and not in fear
Let schools open as soon as possible.Who can be be sure whether there will be Corona next year or not?Let us pray that our children will be safer in schools than at home.I think by now most parents can agree that there is no social distancing at home mostly for children staying in urban centres.I wish to congratulate the Task Force and the good work done to ensure learning resumes in Kenya.Once again,let learner’s go by back to school as soon as possible.
I agree with you. Opening of schools must start from somewhere. The phased opening of schools isn’t a bad idea. It’s not guaranteed the pandemic situation would be better come January 2021. This is a disease which will be with us for sometime, all we need to do now is how to adjust our lives in relation to the virus. May God give us the wisdom to live right
U know let the children be at home for example at home when they get the virus the parent would be answerable but if they get it in school the teachers and the ministry of education will be blamed for double so u decide
Let schools reopen in January 2021,because how would the calendar be ,and also Let students repeat their classes
yes we yes we you have a point
I second the fact of colleges and universities reopening this October then The MOH to access the rate of infections after which it will determine if the primary and secondaries will reopen but sadly it’s a bad deal for schools to be opened we are economically unconvinced so govt pls consider parents and all financiers
Comrades are ok they can still wait till next year ??
When are the universities likely to reopen then because it is very vital for all student levels to be aware so as to prepare adequately.
Us parents we should keep our children s welfare first and foremost. Why risks the health of our children? If the curve was reading today we hear today five people are affect, tomorrow none that will be safer but 100 it is to soon please reconsider. Just one question to you honorable Minister of health will you allow your own children to go back to school when the curve isn’t really flat, really flat as in five people per day.
We should open schools please we need to keep your minds alert
Magoha Wacha kuchezea wazazi akili. Huwezi badilisha mfumo wa elimu hata kidogo. Cha msingi ni masilahi ya watoto. Umefeli kama Waziri. Shule zifunguliwe mwaka ujao na kama ni lazima mwaka Huu basi lipa Karo ndo uweze kujisafisha
School reopen in January, We are ready to wait, financial problem cs plz accept, One of comrades.
Ni kweli sana wacha wafunguliwe shule mwaka jao
True,I am speaking as a person who has been affected. Most parents do not even have the finances at the moment to pay for school fees because we have been jobless for several months now. The government is not really taking this into consideration. We should first stabilization other sectors then think about this. I mean, think of how floods and other occurrences has affected our country. I don’t even think that is enough time for the school affected by such factors to prepare. I personally think this decision was made due to pressure and nothing was really taken into consideration. I think it is a decision they will truly come to regret.
Next year is fairly not October pls
No need of running fast on this matter,Let school reopening be on January because I don’t think the desks and locks that are being made will be ready very soon, some proposes some students to study outside class room which is not possible in rainner area, For University and colleges time is to short for a semester and some students are survivers and this being very hard time most will differ their study, some will try to survive as usual but end up suffering depression resulting to so many cases of sucecide
Magoha acha ujinga huwezi kufunguwa shule ati october na november ach watoto waende shuleni Next year hata hatujapanga schoolfees ama ni wewe utatulipia hio schoolfees acha ujinga abia hio group yako ifunguwe shule next year watoto wangu hawaendi shuleni hio october na november usitucheze akili sisi sio watoto kwenda na hata Corona haija pungua mnapenda tu pesa
Just like the other have said ,for me personally I don’t see the need to be in a rush just because of a mere slight drop over the Covid numbers in Kenya assuming that we have flattened the curve,mark you now in Spain ,Israel and so many other Nations have been forced to go to total lockdown because they made just a slight mistake,where we are heading now i just want to urge you the stakeholders to be patient and overcome this pandemic with so much boldness “assume you were meditating” i that is remedy for such a case and we will come with quite good decisions.Moreover we are repeating classes don’t see the need to be in a rush as if you were the going back to SCH, I really admired the work of honorable Matian’gi,or corona was just a scandal ?my plead is for schools to reopen the coming year which is 2021
Open on 19th october?MAKES NO SENSE
Schools should be opened in JAN. ONE WE HAVE TO MAKE NEW PAIR OF UNIFORMS FORNOUR CHILDREN SINCE THEY CANT FIT ON THE OLD ONES. TWO MOST PARENTS LOST THEIR JOBS HOW DO WE GO ABOUT THIS. SOME PARENTS WANT ALSO TO CHANGE SCHOOLS FOR THEIE KIDS SO WE NEED MORE TIME.
No report of survey done to collect views of parents and students. And while at it, how will the return be done, what will it take? Counties were to close operations for no cash. How much is the government releasing (or has set) for the reopening?
How can some students report on November then close school on the same November then we cheat ourselves the term is over…. remember term one was incomplete …. lets use our common senses well!!!
Jesus Christ! Will teachers be expected to mark the learners books? Will they be expected to sanitize after marking each book? The asymptomatic period is two weeks. Suppose there is just one case in a institution, before it is detected leading to the immediate closure, how many cases will be there? Suppose just a hundred institutions report a case each leading to their closure, what will happen to their candidates? My dear Professor Plz don’t allow these task forces to Experiment with Our Nation’s children else they will sit on the periphery as you are crucified should the worst happen leading our nation to a bloodbath. Let them go back to the drawing board plz.
It is interesting how everyone – including the so called task force, has forgotten about the learners special needs especially the mentally challenged. No mention of there programmes has been made ever since this discussion began. When are these learners expected to to re-open? What are the specific arrangements put in place to cater for their difference? We hope this and many more issues concerning these learners will be addressed in the Monday report.
We too don’t want school to re open Untill jan.. There is also a lot of congestion in the university and colledge
Cs magoha should relook at this point.Surely the trend will be so confusing.Allow the children to continue absorbing the shock of covid and report to schools in January
Let the universities and colleges to open first because they can control themselves as compared to high school and primary schools ,if it goes well with them then class eights ,seven ,form three and four may be given a second priority in opening of schools this will help the candidate class to familiarise themselves with books though l strongly oppose the doing of national exams this year because most of the candidates were not in a position to acquire the so called e learning ,,its high time that we be realistic to this matter rather than rushing to make unfavorable decisions
Mr magoha is it advisable to open schools in October and close in November and call it a second term?wat about the incomplete first term??This is education l agree to most to open in January most especially consider the economy right now havihng tents is not bad but will some schools be able to accommodate teachers to teach from one tent to another l would like to plead with the taskforce to be considerate as a matter of fact the desks are not yet complete l hope that the president’s decision to be considerate they say the curve is flattening the percentage is even increasing from below 5% to 7% you guys are joking u know in schools the virus can spread rapidly
Don’t open colleges and universities, I repeat, don’t reopen. Let comrades wait until January.
I don’t support this idea. I teach in a school, name withheld, where a class room has over 60 students. The students are so over crowded such that even passing between rows is a problem. Teaching is not just sitting Infront of the students. Am required to be very close to see what the students are doing and writing. Sending our kids to school when we are still talking about covid 19 is a risk. My take first open all other sectors first that runs the economy of Kenya. Schools does not much affect economy.otherwise where is the 1.9B obtained from..let schools resume later when covid 19 is not a threat. Otherwise what would be the purpose of hurrying to open schools then we get only one Infection.creating panic to parent then parents withdraw their kids distabillizing the system again. Earliest opening of schools should be reconsidered to January.
Why iz the government tripping???
Psychologically parents and students had already shifted their minds to January from your unsurety of going back and forth about this issue. I take that just as a proposal.. I’ll wait for the President’s remark on this from Monday.
This is a strange news to hear the changes in the normal school calender at this crucial moment but all is well. I second this idea too.
Its alright but what about we colleges???
Comment Textwalai ju mko job hamuooni shida na pesa huku nje baadhi ya parents hawana job ndio fee itatoka wapi na food,rent ni problem naomba wacha shule iwe January pia wacha watu wote yaani chekechea Hadi university warepeat ndio calendar isiharibike plz October 19 iwe ni siku ya kupeana chakula kenya
Honestly i think the university and college students should reopen first….what good are we doing at home…the earlier we are done with our studies the better…we will be able to create room for the others to also join come next year plus we can be employed…just sitting at home jobless and with no certificate we ain’t helping…we are just a burden…think it this way maybe a university student will be the one who will find a vaccine or treatment for this disease…but letting them stay at home then the candidates resume…its useless it won’t help
Surely..we are empty..let it be next year
IAM a candidate this year and I there by request the govt learning to progress next year normally
Let our children resume learning in January. That is a free genuine advice.
Well it seems that KNEC must be preparing themselves to fail the 2020 candidates……… You want to shorten the 2nd term to to 1 month and assume all is well and also remember the 1st term was incomplete. The year should start a fresh on january 2021 so that the candidates can prepare well for there KCSE exams next year……….KCSE is an important & crucial stage in our childrens lives and us parents won’t allow the confused government to destroy our children’s career future.
Due to pademec some parents sift to different places, it’s very difficult for them to trace the best school around coz no school hv been open , January is the best time
Stop being so Uneducated and stop using our children as samples…they are not chemistry samples….if anything happens to this kids you will be answerable or else you will have to pay the school fees this year….si kila mtu akona pesa kama nyinyi…may God punish you if the covid 19 issue isnt real….because schools were closed when there was one only one case but now reopen with thousands…
Let’s not confuse our children surely if schools open in October what a challenge to parents and children let’s go by the first word 2021 is the best corona is still there we were 4 schools closed now 100+ and we want to open it will be a big mess
I support the reopening of university’s and colleges to ease congestion ..most of the students haven’t graduated therefore the institutions will be Jamed when the 2019 candidates join…..but the primary and secondary students should remain at home …it will be hard for them to cope especially in public primary schools and also boarding schools
Finally the fears Kenyans had about cartels in the government pushing for reopening of schools so that they can supply ppes have come true.Bussiness will even be briskier in the event of there being a mass outbreak of covid-19 in schools which is avery likely scenario.
Let schools open in January next year.
You can’t be serious! The closedown of schools was done when the first case of corona virus was reported. How come now you think of reopening the schools when the same cases are above hundred. Seemingly, the stakeholders don’t have schooling children, because they would have the same feelings as parents have. We won’t allow our children be dangerously exposed. It funny! If our children give us hard time to monitor their hygiene at home, how on earth will teachers multitask between teaching and monitoring our children’s hygiene?
Comment Text*acha ujinga bana,all learning institutions should reopen January to me,universities posses a great danger.students come from different places and hugging,sleep over and they are just youths.cant control themselves
This is the worst decision from govt to open schools this year consindering where we av come from n where we are in terms of money! Where on Earth shall we get school fees to pay!
May God come down magoha this decision is very incosinderate…..let schools reopen in January sio wote wako na pesa Kama nyinyi!!
It’s not appropriate for we as learners.. Can’t uu pitty our dear parents where would they rise the school fees from and most have loosed their jobs.. Magoha kindly rethink,,, it’s our lives you gambling with the state ain’t in a position to loose a young generation.. Keep them waiting till next it doesn’t cost much… It’s only three months
How I wish universities would reopen first
Let us allow the government to do its work. There must have been a wide consultations before coming up with this directive. let us respect the commission
whether we open or continue closing our institutions there will be both negative and positive issues that are likely to emerge.. but for sure let us agree that keeping our children at home longer is negatively affecting the future of our children.
I DONT THINK ITS A GOOD IDEA LETS WAIT UNTIL JANUARY FOR PARENTS TO PREPARE .THIS IS VERY URGENT THERE IS SCHOOL TO THINK OFF CHILDREN HAVE OUTGROWN THEIR SCHOOL ATTIRES.
Please go back to your drawing board and think again,let schools reopen on jan_2021,magoha and your group including our president try to think beyond your nose.
Higher institutions should reopen sooner than later
That’s really good news.
I think schools must be opened next year because ukisema sahi watu wengi hawata rudi shule naitakua waste of resources.Magoha team watoto wanasomea nyumbani wakiwa comfortable while us tukirudi shule wengi watasomea chini ya mti
I think your exergerating re opening of schools and some of the ministers don’t have small kids who are in school why don’t you wait for Corona to be declared out .haraka haraka Haina baraka .
What of tacher who are set for tp will they be allowed to have it on third term that is January or right now October Dec this is so tricky.
i think it would be best to open in jan i work in a hospital ad this virus is not s joke tulia magoha
Change is always strange, right now everyone is affected both ways negatively and positively.Now what matters is our resilience and flexibility.sometimes let’s admit that in life what can happen will happen! Either way ,if shools are to reopen or not let us get ready for eny eventuality
Has the good government confirmed to Kenyans that all basic education institutions have adhered to the guidelines on health and safety protocols for reopening of basic education institutions amid COVID-19 issued in July2020 so that our children and teachers are assured of their safety? If not, then the good government should act with speed to ensure compliance.
Good one, though am afraid the deep state won’t adopt this.
Form fours and class 8 should reopen by 19th this month as the others open after the candidate having their examination
As per me school should be open on jan because some of parents do not have money to pay for there children school fees
