Students will start the new school year 2010-2011, on Monday, September 6 instead of Wednesday, September 1.
The revised date has been given by the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development to principals of public and private nursery, primary and secondary schools across the island.
The Ministry has, however, advised that teachers will begin Term 1 on September 1 and use that period down to September 3, for planning purposes.
The mid-term break for Term 1 will remain from Monday, October 18 to Friday, October 22 and the term will end on Wednesday, December 15 for students and the following day, Thursday, December 16 for teachers. firstname.lastname@example.org
