The normal school calendar will resume in January 2023 when the crash programme announced by the Ministry of Education to recover time lost to the Covid-19 outbreak is expected to end.
A statement from the office of the Principal Secretary for basic education shows that the first term for pre-primary, primary and secondary schools will start on January 23, 20223 and will run for 13 weeks, with the closing date slated at April 21, 2023
The school calendar was disrupted in 2020 following the COVID-19 pandemic which saw closure of basic learning institutions, also forcing the Ministry of Education to revise the term dates.
