Parents Stranded As Pupils Fail To Secure Form One Boarding Places

OVER 70 000 prospective Form One pupils are yet to  secure Form One places, it has emerged.

 100 000 pupils applied for boarding places and only  places are available, government has revealed.

In a statement, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Ambassador Cain Mathema said pupils who will not make it into boarding schools must accept it and be enrolled into day schools in their communities.

“The nation has 24 000 boarding places. We estimate that about 100 000 learners are seeking boarding places.

 Those who will not be successful in securing boarding places will, therefore, be accommodated at day schools in their school zones,” said Mathema.
