The Ministry of Education has directed all regional and County Directors of Education to ensure that students proceed on half-term break on Friday, November 19, 2021, and resume learning on Tuesday, November 23, 2021.

The government had earlier on indicated that there will be no mid-term for secondary school students during the third term which began last month.

The decision has been reached after several schools had been burned by students across the country, citing failure by the government to include a half-term break during the third term.

Some of the schools that have experienced fire include Sigalame Boys High School,   Kanjuri High School in Nyeri, Buruburu Girls, Kabarak High School, and Gendia Secondary School among many others.

The Education directors shall be required to communicate the information to all Principals of Secondary Schools as said.
