Junior secondary school placements for pupils in Grade 6 have been extended by ten days, as stated by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.
The new deadline is September 10, Magoha said on Saturday, August 27, after examining the current renovations in various schools in Kiambu county. Previously, students had until the 30th of August to make their decision before the extension.
“We have done extremely well in registering our children in Grade Six in regards to selections. We have interfered with some dates which made the exercise to start late,” Magoha stated.
The Education Cabinet Secretary defended his decision, saying that the postponement was necessary because of the August 9 elections and the subsequent delay in the start of classes.
