By Aaron Humes: The Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology has announced that government-run and grant-aided pre-primary and primary schools will return to classes starting Monday, September 5, for a 38-week run, most likely face-to-face rather than hybrid or entirely virtual teaching.
Other education-related events on the calendar are International Literacy Day on September 8; World Teachers’ Day on October 5; Universal Children’s Day on November 18 in lieu of Sunday, November 20; the return of the Festival of Arts for pre-primary level from March 20 – 31 and for primary level from May 2 – 31; and Education Week from May 8 – 12 including Teachers’ Day on May 12.
The official academic calendar lays out four cycles of teaching from September to June and lists public and bank holidays, school-related holidays including Christmas and Easter vacation, and other activities.
Teachers will undertake continuous professional development training and school planning through the first half of August and go “on call” starting in the second half of August before school formally re-opens.
