Ministry Of Education And Sports Reschedules Academic Dates

The ministry of education and sports has come out to issue new guidelines to academic institutions following President Museveni’s recent address about covid 19 last week.

The President talked about the spike of covid 19 cases among the general population. He also showed great concern for the upsurge of covid 19 cases in schools.

The ministry of education and sports has decided to reschedule dates for the learners who were scheduled to break off for holidays and those that were slated to resume school. This comes following Museveni’s recent address and another pending one for Sunday 6th June.

“Pending the expected guidance of H.E the President, Ministry of Education and Sports informs managers of educational institutions and the general public that the planned reporting back to school and breaking off for the holidays as indicated above should be delayed until further notice”. Part of the statement read.

In December last year, the ministry of education and sports released a new academic calendar.

This was after the  Covid-19 pandemic disrupted the normal school calendar. This saw learners spend close to a year at home. However, in the released program, learner’s started returning to school in a staggered manner.

In this calendar, p.1-p.3 classes were expected to return back to school on 7th June 2021. Concurrently, p.5-p.6 classes were expected to break off for holidays on 4th June. Semi candidates ( P.6, S 3, and S.5) were also expected to report back to school on 7th June.

The statement ended by reading, “meanwhile the Ministry of education and Sports is working closely with the Ministry of Health to control the spread of the pandemic in education institutions and ensure early reporting and effective management of any emerging cases.”
