There was relative calmness in most of the Bungoma schools despite protests called by Azimio over the high cost of living.

Headteachers ensured smooth learning in their schools as Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) tests for Grade Three and Grade Seven pupils went on as planned.

Bungoma District Education Board (DEB) Principal Tobias Khisa said the protests did not interrupt learning.

“I have all the learners in school, those sitting for CBC assessment tests and those in other classes.

The practicals are ongoing as earlier planned, and we don’t have anything to worry about,” said Mr. Khisa.

The assessment is being conducted by the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) where learners are undertaking practical and project activities.

Pupils in Junior Secondary School are expected to portray what they understand in class through the national projects assessments.

The assessments have been referred to as national projects are practical exams incorporating subjects such as home science, where students carry out baking and cooking assignments.

According to KNEC directions, the projects will continue till August 17.

The learners are being assessed by respective schools’ teachers across the country and after the assessment is over, the teachers will have to submit their scores.
