Holiday tuition still in progress in some areas despite ban

By James Maina
Cabinet Secretary for Education, Science and Technology, Jacob Kaimenyi had warned against April holiday tuition for all primary and secondary schools, terming it illegal and that any school head found retaining students during the holidays will be prosecuted. Despite this some schools in Ol-Moran and Kinamba Divisions in Laikipia County are conducting holiday tuition.
Schools from Ol-Moran like St. Caesarious Academy and Ol-Moran Primary School opted to have class eight pupils attend tuition at a fee.
Most private primary schools in Kinamba Division are propelling this “tuition’ at chargeable fees.
A teacher at Ol-Moran Primary School who requested anonymity said that they have to clear the syllabus and embark on revision. The teacher lamented that when the school will fail in KCPE they are the ones who will be blamed.
Some class eight pupils from Ol-Moran Township told LRV that they are rushing to complete the syllabus in time and later embark on vigorous revision. The pupils said that they have no problem with tuition as they want to pass in KCPE examination.
In Sipili Division, schools like Lariak, Mahiga, Kaharati, Sipili, Mithuri and Bondeni Primary School as well as Zooming Hope and Young Roses Academy had started tuition immediately after Easter Monday but when word got around that the Education officer had informed Sipili OCS to arrest head teachers and teachers who were conducting tuition, pupils were released to go home until the schools reopen for second term.
