The Ministry of Education has released the 2023 academic calendar showing learners will report back to school after twelve weeks from the day of breaking off for holidays.
The Director Basic Education at the Ministry of Education Hajji Ismael Mulindwa says the school term will return to standard 12 weeks as opposed to the 14 that were introduced for the 2022 academic year due to the covid-19 pandemic.
The calendar released is for Secondary, Technical, and Farm schools, Pre-Primary, Primary Schools, and Community Polytechnics.
According to the 2023 academic calendar, next year’s first term is expected to begin on February 6, 2023, running for 89 days and ending on May 5.
Learners will then go for a 23-day holiday and return for a second term on May 29 which will run up to August 25.
As the calendar returns to normal, the third term will also be the shortest term as it was covering 75 days starting from September, 18 up to December 2.
