Schools Gazetted as Tallying Centres to Break for Midterm 5 Days Earlier Than Other Schools-See List

The general election will irreversibly disrupt the school calendar as a good number of learning institutions will serve as tallying centres during the elections ( see list here).

A majority of the institutions are primary, secondary schools, universities and technical training institutes.

Sources from the ministry, IEBC, and the targeted schools have revealed that schools which will serve as tallying centres will break for midterm on Monday, 5 days earlier than other schools.

“To all parents, students will break for midterm on Monday 1/8/2022 at 8am as the school has been identified as a tallying centre,” the message reads.

Schools that will not serve as tallying centres will release students for half-term break on August 5.

“Dear parent, please come and pick up your daughter (name withheld) on Friday 5/8/2022 by 9am. The resumption date will be communicated later,” the message reads.

Depending on the schools’ organization, some schools which will not serve as tallying centres will begin releasing students for mid-term break from Wednesday August 3 2022.

The Ministry of Education’s school calendar had previously directed that learners break on August 11 and resume after three days.
