In next week, all primary and secondary schools will likely close for the first term break, and students will be excused from class for a week, until July 10, 2022.
In last month, May 29, 2022, all schools reopened for the start of the new academic year. The new situation differs from the previous ones, when classes began again in January of each year.
The first term holiday in 2022 was so brief that schools closed for almost two months..
The third term will last from September 26, 2022, to November 25, whereas the second term will run from July 11, 2022, to September 16.
The aforementioned modifications are intended to make up for the time lost when the school was shuttered during the Covid 19 outbreak to stop the spread of the disease.
According to the MoE calendar, all schools will close on 1st July and resume for term two on 11th July 2022.
The schooling calendar will return to normal by January 2023, according to the ministry of education.
