Government Projects Reopening of Schools for July


By Stuart Bogere 

The Ministry of Education has released a revised calendar indicating that students are expected to return to schools on July 19 to complete the 2020 academic year.

According to Alex Kakooza, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, schools are projected to reopen for learners who had not completed their 2020 academic year on July 19.

According to the calendar, all the students reporting on July 19 will study for about one-and-a-half months, sit for promotional exams, and will start the 2021 academic year on September 20 with P.4 and P.5 learners who had completed their promotional exams before schools were closed.
