The Ministry of Education (MoE) has issued interim guidelines for Junior School co-curricular activities that learners will be participating in this year as per the calendar.
In the guidelines issued through a circular dated February 13, 2024 and signed by one Hassan Duale on behalf of the Basic Education Principal Secretary (PS) Dr. Belio Kipsang, the Sub-County Directors of Education (SCDEs) will nominate some caretaker committee members from the current elected and serving sub-county Kenya Primary Schools Sports Association Committee to manage the activities while SCDEs do oversight and coordination at the sub-county level.
The County Directors of Education (CDEs) have also been instructed to establish the same caretaker committees from serving county Kenya Primary Schools Sports Association committees to manage the activities at the county level under the supervision of the CDEs. The same principle will apply to regions.
“The SCDEs, CDEs and RDEs are advised to select from the serving officials separate for each activity since primary and junior activities will run concurrently in two different venues that is in Nyeri and Machakos respectively,” read the circular.
The sub-county, county and regional Directors of Education have been instructed to ensure that there is incorporation of teachers managing junior school as officials of the activities, such as team managers, coaches and referees, alongside their primary and secondary school counterparts.
According to this year’s calendar, the term one activities for Junior School will be athletics, cross country, handball, swimming and basketball, while second term activities will be soccer, volleyball, basketball and netball.
