Prof. George Magoha , Cs ministry of education ,has once again insisted that all the students are expected to cover four terms in one year instead of three terms as it happens in a normal calendar of the year.
This change has taken effect since the government is trying to cover the time that was lost during the COVID-19 pandemic which led to closing of schools for more than 8 months in last year,2021.
Most Students reported back to their respective schools in January this year to complete the third term of 2021 which is scheduled to end in March 4th.
This means that term three for 2022,will run for nine weeks thus learners will break for holiday on 4th March 2022 before resuming for the first term of 2022 on April 25th, a holiday that will run for nearly two months.This is unlike the earlier communication that has been circulating on social media that schools will close on 25th February.
During this period (March 4th to April 25th), candidates in class eight and form four will be sitting for their final national examinations.
Unlike in the other years when the calendar was normal,, official closing dates could be towards the end of March.
This time round, the education ministry came up with the calendar that all should be aware of and get prepared,, hence change of dates to the official dates of 4th March.
Just unlike in the other previous years when the calendar was normal,Term one of 2022 will begin on 25th April and end on 1st July.
