In accordance with the pronouncement by the President on 15 March 2020, schools will be closed from 18 March 2020 and will reopen on 14 April 2020. This decision has been informed by the warnings provided by the National Institution of Communicable Diseases and World Health Organisation who have highlighted the alarming increase of infections within the country over a three day period. Schools have thus been identified as high risk areas that could spread the infections easily. For this reason the following measures as illustrated below have been put in place.

Due processes will be followed to formally amend the school calendar to make up the loss of nine days of schooling. In order to recover the academic programme, the June 2020 vacation will be shortened by seven (7) school days and the September 2020 vacation will be shortened by two (2) school days.
