Government to abolish boarding schools from Jan 2023- PS Belio



For students in grades 1 through 9, the government will abolish boarding primary schools starting in January 2023.

Belio Kipsang, the new basic education principal secretary, announced on Tuesday that parents would be required to send their primary school-aged children to day schools.

The radical policy’s overall result is that students who transfer to junior secondary schools will enroll in local day schools.

“We must create a way in which we can be with our children and the only way is through day schooling. The first nine years of learning that are Grades 1 to 9, the direction that the government is taking will be day schooling,” Kipsang’ said.

Already the government has ordered that JSS be domiciled at primary schools, meaning that pupils will continue schooling in their current schools – which will now have to be day schools.

Kipsang’ said that parents have the primary responsibility as first educators to walk with their children and ensure that they acquire the right values they desire them to have.

“We cannot outsource our responsibility as we parents, we only co-parent with teachers but we cannot outsource parenting from the teachers,” Kipsang’ said.

“Going forward, day schooling will be the direction, that’s the only way we shall be able to engage with our children.”
