People who train students in activities such as drama will no longer be allowed in schools in a raft of tough guidelines the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has issued in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

In a circular dated June 13, TSC chief executive Nancy Macharia said the new guidelines aim to enhance the safety and welfare of all learners.

Moi Girls School Nairobi and Maasai Girls in Narok have been on the spot lately over allegations of sexual harassment of students.

“All principals and headteachers shall ensure that for any co-curricular activity -- games and sports, music, drama, scouts, girl guides, educational tours, congresses, exchange programmes, debates, symposia and contests, among others within or outside the school, pupils and students are accompanied by at least one registered teacher of the same sex depending on the number of students or pupils involved in the activities,” she said.

Mrs Macharia also said persons not registered as teachers would no longer be incorporated in the school programmes including co-curricular activities.

Students or pupils must be released from the activities in time to enable the them reach their schools or homes before 6pm while boarding institutions must end their night activities by 9pm.

She has also directed all county directors and sub-county directors to display the circular conspicuously on notice boards.
