The Ministry of Education has announced the revised school academic calendar for 2023. According to the new notice signed by Belio Kipsang on January 10, the opening dates for the 2023 first term remained unchanged with the first term beginning January 23, and running up to April 21.

Education Ministry altered the previously set mid-term break dates from March 23 to March 16. The break will run for a period of three days which will see learners resume on March 19.

Initially, the learners were to break on March 23 and resume on March 26. The circular was copied to Education CS Ezekiel Machogu, TSC Secretary Nancy Macharia, and KNEC CEO David Njengere.

“KCPE and KPSEA will begin on November 30 and end on November 2,” the circular reads.

All primary and secondary schools in the country will proceed for their first holiday on April 21 2022 after the end of the first term.

The opening and mid-term dates for the second term were maintained at May 8 and June 29 respectively. However, the closing dates of the term were changed from August 8 as initially stated to August 11. The holiday will last for two weeks before reopening on August 28.

The Ministry further adjusted third term dates with the new calendar showing that the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education- KCPE and the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment examinations are scheduled to kick off on October 30, as opposed to the earlier communicated date of November 6.

The two assessments will run concurrently for four days before ending on November 2. Term three, according to the Ministry, will start on August 28 to run for nine consecutive weeks without a mid-term break.

This will be a departure from the previously communicated calendar which had indicated that the term would last a period of 10 weeks. In addition, Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams will commence on November 3, which is a shift from the previously communicated date of November 10 as the commencement date.

The 2023 candidates will write their examinations until November 24. This will later pave way for marking which according to the released timetable will commence on November 27 and run until December 15.

The first term will have 13 weeks, the second term 14 weeks, and the third term will be the shortest with 10 weeks.
