Ministry of education extends opening dates for third term 2019 to September

The Ministry of Education (MoE) has extended the opening date for third term 2019. Initially schools were to be opened on 26 August but this date coincides with national exercise that will be carried by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS).

The decision was reached after the census dates scheduled for August 24 and 25, 2019 coincided with the school opening dates.

Last week KNBS wrote to ministry requesting to consider changing the official oppening date for third term so as not to jeopardize this important exercise that is carried after every ten years.

In response to KNBS request, the Ministry of education has rescheduled the official opening of third term to 2nd September, 2019.

“For the forthcoming census to be successful, it is the desire of National Bureau of Statistics that be there minimum movement of population so that they may get as many people as possible in conventional households,” reads part of circular signed by education PS Dr. Belio Kipsang.

“Its therefore important  to reschedule the opening of third term 2019 to start on 2nd September 2019 and end on 25th October 2019,” further read the circular dated 8th August 2019.
