Government To Come Up With New School Term Structure
The government is working on a new school term structure to guide the learning process with the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education (MoPSE) holding consultations with relevant education stakeholders to come up with the structure.
The structure will factor in opening and closing dates, June examination classes, November examination dates, school fees structure, and breaks during the term.
MoPSE spokesperson, Patrick Zumbo, said:
We are working on a structure which will be ready in the next few weeks.
The structure will show how learning will be done and if there will be a break.
It is not an easy process, but we are working on it.
The primary and secondary school year traditionally runs on three terms, each with three months but schools have been closed since March due to the coronavirus outbreak.
June examinations are scheduled to commence at the end of this month while the first group of learners, that is exam classes, starts lessons on July 28.
