The implementation of the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) in Kenya has brought significant changes to the education sector. One of the changes is the introduction of Junior Secondary Education, which has replaced the traditional 8-4-4 system of education. At our school, Camp Brethren Christian Schools, we have embraced this new system, and we are excited to share our experiences.
Our Junior Secondary Education program currently has 40 students. The curriculum for Junior Secondary Education entails 12 core subjects and 2 optional subjects, which allow students to pursue their interests and passions. This approach aims to create a well-rounded education that prepares students for the future and helps them become better citizens.

One of the noticeable changes with the new system is the different uniforms worn by the junior high students. This is to differentiate them from other students and to foster a sense of belonging and identity.
The implementation of the new Junior Secondary Education program has not been without its challenges. As with any new system, there have been a few teething problems, and we are working hard to catch up. However, we are confident that with time, we will be able to overcome these challenges and provide our students with a quality education.
Overall, we believe that the new Junior Secondary Education program is an excellent initiative that will help our students acquire the skills they need to succeed in life. The 12 core subjects and 2 optional subjects offer a wide range of opportunities for our students to explore their interests and passions, and we are excited to see them thrive.
The new Junior Secondary Education program is an exciting development in the education sector in Kenya. We are proud to have embraced this new system at Camp Brethren Christian Schools, and we are confident that it will provide our students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for the future. Despite a few challenges, we are determined to make the most of this opportunity and provide our students with the best possible education.
