This was disclosed by President for the Heads of Conference of Basic Schools, Mrs Mercy Akayila Anuembi in an interview on Adom FM.
Indeed, final year university students are to report to their universities on 15th June; final year senior high school (SHS 3) students, together with SHS 2 Gold Track students, on 22nd June; and final year junior high school (JHS 3) students on 29th June.
The Junior High School students will no longer on breaks because of the shorter time they will spend in school so their parents should ensure they are fed before they leave for school. she said.
Mrs Anuembi added that students will be closing earlier than it used to be. According to her, the lessons for the day will span from 8 am to 1 pm.
