2022 is expected to be a very abnormal year in the education calendar. Going by a circular produced by the ministry of education, students will have to cover four terms in one year instead of three terms as it happens in a normal year.








All this is happening as the government tries to cover the time that was lost during the COVID-19 pandemic which led to closing of schools for more than 8 months.











This means that parents and guardians will have to dig deeper in their pockets to finance the school fees for the four terms in 2022.

Term three will run for nine weeks. This means that learners will break for holiday on 5th March before resuming for the first term of 2022 on April 25th.

  1. The changes are unfortunate to both parents and students in terms of short durations parents are left with burden of looking for school fees in short notices and school heads are on our neck we have to pay school fees in full before admission it’s really hectic to we parents due that we have not only one child paying school fees for. Our Kenyan Government being lead with our beloved Uhuru Kenyatta should come to our resque we beg.

  2. Covid 19 forced us to change our daily routine which is okay given the circumstances, and I understand the burden that it has given to parents in terms of school fee payment and other bills necessary for the survival of families. We have to brace ourselves just a little.

  3. School fees payment gonna milk me out,already stressed,other student school needs also needs to be met for the student’s comfortability and convenience at school,,,am overwhelmed already and on the verge of giving up
