Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association (KSSSA) through its chairman Mr. Peter Orero has announced that sporting activities in secondary schools will commence again after more than a year since they were stopped owing to Covid 19 pandemic.
The decision was arrived at following a stakeholders’ meeting held in Nakuru during the month May. Those who attended included officials from the ministry of education and KSSSA.
KSSSA Chairman, Mr. Peter Orero, indicated that the Ministry of education had called for a stakeholders meeting to chart the way forward. The meeting was informed by the fact that young talents were being ‘wasted’ due to lack of activities in learning institutions.
He said: “The Ministry of Education called a stakeholders meeting to brainstorm on how co-curricular activities can resume in schools and colleges as soon as possible. We were in agreement that we cannot replace the talents currently being wasted by lack of activities in schools and colleges and have agreed in principle that co-curricular activities must begin soonest possible.”
The meeting fruitfully came up with a comprehensive programme for the resumption of co-curricular activities in schools and colleges.
According to the calendar of activities seen by this writer, term one games (which include Athletics, cross country, basketball, hockey and handball) will be held in term one 2021 which kicks off in July.
Similarly, term two games (Soccer, Netball, Volleyball and Racquet games) will be held in second term which kicks off in October.
