The Ministry of Education has authorized the safe resumption of co-curricular and inter-school activities in Kenyan institutions.

This, according to a circular released by Education Principal Secretary Julius Jwan to Regional, County and Sub-county Directors of Education dated November 15, 2021.

Dr Jwan noted that the new directive was informed by revised guidelines from the Ministry of Health on the containment of the Covid-19 virus.

Kenyan schools will now be free to host and attend the extra-curricula activities under the Covid-19 safety protocols.

"On 18th October, 2021 the Ministry of Health recommended that interschool sporting activities may gradually resume with strict adherence to the current guidelines prepared by MoE [Ministry of Education]. The initial focus should be on non-contact/ low contact activities as guided in the protocols.

"In view of the above development, the Ministry of Education advises the Principals to engage learners in internal co-curricular activities and guided inter-school contests over the weekend and after classes. Meanwhile the Ministry is working on modalities for full resumption of activities in due course," Dr Jwan advised.
