form one admission

Ministry of Education has extended the reporting date for Form One students to Friday next week, January 18 to allow 100 per cent transition.

In a circular to all education officials, Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang said the decision was influenced by school heads and parents who were concerned about the low turn out in schools.

“To ensure 100 per cent transition is attained, and the need to give every child an opportunity, the Ministry of Education has extended the reporting date.

All schools – both public and private – are directed to upload all admitted students’ names into Nemis system immediately,” PS Kipsang said.
