EDUCATION MINISTRY GUIDELINES FOR TRAVELLING OF KCSE CANDIDATES BACK HOME – Full Circular




The Education Ministry has issued guidelines on how the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates will travel in and out of the locked-down counties after the national examination.

In a circular dated 9th of April, 2021, Principal Secretary in charge of Early Learning and Basic Education, Dr. Julius Jwan, addressed all County Directors of Education.




He directed them to work with County Commissioners and Principals of Secondary schools to ensure that the travel of the Form 4 students was facilitated.




 

Schools have also been directed to make arrangements with transport companies on how students will be picked from school after the exams. Further, they must ensure that students travel home in school uniform and with letters of introduction from the school.

The schools have also been instructed to communicate with parents or guardians about all the transport arrangements that will be held.




President Uhuru Kenyatta on the 26th of March announced the cessation of movement in and out of Nairobi, Machakos, Kiambu, Nakuru, and Kijiado counties following the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the country.

“In respect to education in Kenya there shall be immediate suspension of all ongoing physical learning in all our institutions including universities, tertiary and vocational colleges, other than for candidates sitting for the examinations and those in medical institutions until otherwise notified,” Kenyatta said.




 

Below is the circular with the transport guidelines for KCSE candidates.

 

All County Directors of Education,

RE: TRAVEL OF KCSE CANDIDATES IN AND OUT OF NAIROBI, MACHAKOS KIAMBU, KAJIADO AND NAKURU

As you are aware, there was put in the place a cessation of movement in and out of the above counties for purposes of managing the Covid 19 pandemic.




However, as the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) comes to an end the candidates will need to travel to and out of the area under lockdown.

You are required to work with County Commissioners and Principals of Secondary Schools to ensure that the candidates are facilitated to travel. Schools should:




  1. Organize with transport companies to have the students picked from Schools.
  2. Ensure those traveling are in school uniform and have letters of introduction from the school.
  3. Communicate to the parents of the students on the transport arrangements made. Kindly bring this to the attention of all public and private secondary schools offering KCSE Exams.
