Schools To Close Early Next Week For Half Term Breaks, Here Is Why

By Getrude Mathayo / Published July 29, 2022 | 4:06 pm





In order to accommodate the General Elections, which will take place on August 9, 2022, the midterm break comes earlier. The General Election is expected to cause disruptions to the academic calendar because several learning institutions will serve as polling and tallying centers.

According to a gazette notice from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, almost 250 schools will be used as tallying centers.

Most of the institutions are primary and secondary schools, universities, and technical training institutes. Several circulars and messages sent to parents have revealed that schools that will serve as tallying centers will break for midterm on Monday.

“To all parents, students will break for midterm on Monday 1/8/2022 at 8 am as the school has been identified as a tallying center,” the message reads

Schools that will not serve as tallying centers will release students for a half-term break on August 5. The Ministry of Education’s school calendar had previously directed that learners break on August 11 and resume after three days.

However, due to the election set for August 9, the students will not be able to continue with their studies between August 1 and August 10. According to IEBC 17 institutions of higher education will be used as county tallying centers.

Primary and secondary schools began their academic activities for the year 2022 on April 26th, and they returned for half term on the 26th of last June until the 29th of June before returning to school to begin the second half of term one.

Primary and secondary schools closed on 2nd July 2022 and allowed pupils to travel back home for a short first-term holiday that remains until 10th July 2022, a duration of one week.

Students began their second term on 11th July 2022 and were supposed to break for half term on 11th August 2022.  A duration of three days and end on 14th August 2022, then returning for the second part of term two, the second term was officially to end on 16th September 2022.
