Grade Seven learners to report to Junior Secondary Monday/Picture courtesy

Grade Seven learners will start reporting to Junior Secondary School Monday, heralding the implementation of the second phase of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

While some schools are ready to receive the pioneer class of grade 7, some are yet to give parents clear directions on the requirements such as uniforms.  

Other parents are yet to know where students whose schools were not cleared to host junior secondary will be transferred to. 

The first term of junior secondary also faces the challenge of inadequate facilities such as laboratories especially in public schools, with the Ministry of Education directing that they share the facilities of neighbouring learning institutions. 

The move will facilitate the teaching of junior secondary school practical subjects such as integrated science, agriculture, computer science, home science, visual and performing arts. 

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is also expected to deploy adequate teachers to junior secondary schools.
