The government through the Ministry of Education has announced new opening dates for schools countrywide to give parents and students time to travel after the Christmas festivities.

In circular dated December 24, 2018, the ministry has now pushed date for all primary, secondary and teachers training colleges by a day to January 3, 2019. Schools were scheduled to open on January 2, 2019.

“In order to allow time for learners and teachers who may have traveled to various places during the holiday season to return to their institutions, the opening day is rescheduled to 3rd January 2019,” reads the circular.

This comes even as the government is set to roll out the new school curriculum in January following public uproar over plans to push it to 2020.
