Return of school half-term normalcy.
Ezekiel Machogu, the Cabinet Secretary for Education, provided crucial information regarding the 2024 school year’s academic schedule on Friday, October 13. Pre-primary, primary, junior secondary, senior secondary, and teacher preparation colleges will all be impacted by the calendar.
Notably, the government mandated that schools return for Term One 2024 on January 8 and that they will close on April 5, making the term a full 13 weeks long. Many individuals across the nation have responded favorably to this announcement, especially educators and other stakeholders.
The report also states that half-term vacations would proceed as scheduled, with schools taking a three-day break from February 29 to March 3 rather than the earlier seven-day break.
The same article from local media states that after that, students would take a three-week break from April 8 to April 26.
The second semester, which will run from April 29 to August 5 with a customary three-day half-term break in June, will start on April 29.
