|1st term||4th Jan||18th March||2nd term 2020 content|

|4th term||11th Oct||23rd Dec||2nd term 2021 content|
Although Grade 4 was also not supposed to attend, I request parents to consider bringing them back. Being the first CBC group, it is important for them to do a recap of the CBC content of the previous classes as well continue to supervise current projects. They have a garden and trees they planted this term. This will also occupy them during the long holiday break (4 months).
Attendance will not be compulsory for them but necessary. Those that will attend will pay only a half of 3rd term’s tuition fees i.e. Kshs. 14,300/- (they will however pay for any other extras, like transport).
In the table below, we have the 2022 term dates and the corresponding content academic year.

|2nd term||25th April 22||1st July 22||1st term 2022 academic year|
|3rd term||11th July 22||16th Sep||2nd term 2022 academic year|

By the end of 2022 the school will have covered the content for 2020, 2021 and 2022. By 2023 the transition will revert back to January.
Junior SecondaryJunior Secondary will start in 2023 with the current Grade 4. The school has embarked on a preparation programme for the same. Parents will be kept updated on the progress regularly.
Text BooksMany learners don’t have the required text books for use during class lessons. This makes it difficult for delivery of academic content and for learners to do their assignments and homework.
Many parents have also voiced the challenge of having to buy books every year which may not be put to good use in the subsequent years, after transition.
The management has therefore reconsidered the matter. The school will start providing the text books but as from July 2021, when the current classes will be transiting to next levels. It will however be on a cost sharing basis with parents.
School FeesSchool fees is payable in two instalment. 80% on or before term onset and 20% by the end of the 1st month of the term.
