KISII, Kenya, December 4, 2021 – Ninety per cent of students across Kisii County reported back to school on the first day of school’s reopening after a long break of eight months occasioned by the raging global Covid-19 pandemic.
Kisii County Director of Education Pius Ngoma said students had reported in many schools without experiencing any hiccups.
“We have received the alerts that a good number of students have reported back to school and we are anticipating having a 100 per cent of students back to school,” said Ngoma.
He noted the students are well prepared full of energy to get back to school after a long break stay at home.
He said those who have arrived at schools have shown the enthusiasm to following the Ministry of Health protocols and guidelines on Covid-19 prevention without letting teachers supervise them.
Ngoma said some of the schools have extra classrooms in case the number of new admissions of students increases. He acknowledged few schools have received desks from the ministry due to high number of schools per constituency.
At Kisii Primary School, the headteacher Grace Nyamweya said in each class two to three students did not report on the first day and teachers are following up with parents and guardians to establish why they failed to report.
“Pupils started reporting as early as 5:00 am in the morning especially in the upper classes, pupils are still coming and teachers have been attending lessons,” she said the school had received few pupils for admission but they will increase as time goes by.
