Junior secondary students to have different uniforms

CS Machogu stated that the colour and type of uniforms will be determined by the Board of Management (BoMs). He clarified that it is the mandate of the BoMs to determine the final uniforms for their students.

Machogu therefore asked all parents to bear with the situation and ensure they buy new uniforms for their students.

“At this particular point, since it is secondary, the uniform will not be the same and each board of management will be able to make decisions on the colour and type of uniform students will be put on. Parents will have to bear the responsibility of buying the uniform for students,”  the CS said.

CS Ezekiel Machogu also revealed that there will be no fees charged for students enrolling in junior secondary schools.

“No schoolshould charge any fees for Grade 7 learners unless such schools are boarding wings,” Machogu clarified.
