Form One Students would be allowed to wear primary school uniforms,CS Machogu Explains. A Form One student may use their primary school uniform for a little period of time if their parents are unable to purchase a new one immediately away, according to Ezekiel Machugu, Education Cabinet Secretary.
While overseeing the Form One admission procedure at St. Georges Secondary School in Nairobi on Monday, Machogu urged teachers to be forgiving of students who don’t arrive at school in the appropriate attire.
The official continued, “We made it clear that parents are notified about the uniform to buy and, when a parent is unable to do so right away, they are given time so that a youngster can come in wearing the primary uniform they wore and maintain wearing it while parents make preparations to buy the same.”
The education CS also addressed parents’ worries about the exorbitant payments that have been demanded of them by the institutions.
The Kilemi Mwiria education taskforce advised secondary school fees, according to Machogu, and not even one shilling more should be paid for them.
The fees were established by the Kilemi Mwiria commission seven years ago, and the government has not increased them since then. which set the funding for national schools and out-of-county schools at Ksh 53,455. According to the CS, the sum is Ksh 45,000 for County boarding secondary schools.
Additionally, he said that paying tuition should be done term by term rather than all at once.
According to Machogu, CDF funding would be used to provide impoverished children with scholarships and bursaries in an effort to achieve a 100% transfer to secondary education.
In day schools, parents only need to pay for uniforms; no further expenses are required.
