Schools were scheduled to reopen on 28 June for the second term but due to a spike in COVID-19 infections, the government was forced to postpone face-to-face learning.
The government amended this year’s schools’ calendar which will see three examination classes (Upper Six, Form Four and Grade Seven) commencing on 30 August while the remaining ones resuming on 6 September.
The reopening of schools for the second term has now been set with a total of 80 teaching days and 24 vacation days.
