The Ministry of Education has released the school calendar for next academic year. It also warned schools that are planning to go against this calendar in any way.
According to this school Calendar, students will report on the 6th February 2023. By the fact that students are getting holidays soon, means holidays are for two months and a half almost.
The minister of Education and Sports, Janet Museveni, while addressing the media advised parents to keep their children safe.
With the ongoing Ebola outbreak, she advised parents to guard their children against ebola and early teenage pregnancies during the coming long holidays.
“All parents should try their level best in protecting their children from getting pregnant in this holiday like what happened in the Covid-19 lockdown. And also protect them from the deadly virus,” Museveni said.
The first term is scheduled to begin on February 6, 2023, and end on May 5, approximately 12 weeks. Last year though, students reported earlier to cover up for the COVID break.
Most of the holidays were even cut short to make sure students really catch up. With the Ebola outbreak though, the schools are still going to be affected by this because it’s easy to spread amidst schools.
This communication obviously has received mixed reactions from both parents and teachers because of its different impacts on all parties, especially the students. However, doesn’t look like anything will be amended by the ministry of education.
