The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, MOPSE, has released the phased school calendar for the remainder of the 2020 academic calendar and the start of 2021.

In a notice issued on Tuesday by the MOPSE permanent secretary Tumisang Thabela, Phase One for the Phased School Term commenced on Monday, 28 September 2020. This is strictly for ZIMSEC examination classes, that is, Grade 7, Form 4 and Form 6.

Phase Two is for Grade 6; Form 3 and 5. It starts on 26 October 2020.

Phase Three is for the following Grades: ECD A; B; 1; 2; 3; 4 and 5; Forms 1 and 2. It commences on Monday, 9 November 2020.

This means that Phase One will run for 60 days, Phase Two for 40 days, and Phase Three for 30 days.

The Phased Term ends on Friday, 18 December 2020 and pupils will be going on vacation for only 17 days.

First Term 2021 begins on Monday 4 January 2021.
It is not clear if learners will undergo a phased opening as has been the case this term due to COVID-19.
Primary and secondary schools in Zimbabwe closed in March, just a week before the end of the first term following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
