Ministry of education cautions teachers against Holiday Assignments

Ministry of education has warned teachers against giving home work to students during long holidays.

Schools closed last week for November-December holidays to allow smooth administration of KCPE and KCSE.

Next term is set to begin on 2nd January for and it will run for 14 weeks as per 2019 term dates.

Director for Secondary Dr. Paul Kibet yesterday cautioned teachers not to give students more holiday assignments so as enable them to relax and socialise, bond and mingle with the family and community.

“That is why schools are advised against giving a lot of homework to learners when they go home for school holidays. Doing so extends the school to the home environment, which cuts off children from full interaction with the life,” Mr Kibet said.

Dr. Paul further urged parents to be available for guidance and be mentors, modelers, coaches and inspirers to their children.

He a also added that the role of holidays is to allow children to learn from the community and interact positively.

“The community provides a platform where the education of the children continues. The knowledge, skills, values and attitudes they imbibe from the family and community feed into the education they get formally in school,” he said.

Meantime KCPE that kicked on today under tight security is set to run up to 1st November, 2018.

Preparation for KCSE is underway though students taking subjects like French and Home science have already been tested in practicals.

Sit in exams will commence on 5th with students facing Mathematics and Chemistry.
