According to the 2021 school calendar 2021 all schools were expected to close on 23rd December 2021 and reopen on 3rd of January 2021.
The school reopening may be postponed to a later date after parents started pleading with the cabinet Secretary of Education asking him to extend the opening dates.
The parents are claiming that the period the children will be at home is very short and they will not be in a position to have enough money to pay for their school fee.
The Chairman of Parents Association, Nicholas, has informed the public that he has received many complaints from the guardians that the holiday given to children is too short for them to cater for the festivities and also raise enough money for them to take their children to school.
Parents are therefore requesting the government to extend the opening dates for the children.
In my opinion all schools should be reopened on 11th January so that the parents will jave enough money to get their children back to school.
