South Sudan gov’t declared May 2nd as the official school opening day.
The government has set May 2nd as the official opening date for schools throughout the nation, according to the Undersecretary of the National Ministry of General Education.
The government said in last year’s guideline for school reopening that the academic year 2022-2023 would formally begin on April 4.
Speaking to media yesterday in Juba, the Undersecretary of the National Ministry of General Education, Kuyok Abuol Kuyok, disclosed that all schools would reopen on May 2, 2022, according to the new academic calendar.
Kuyok, on the other hand, claims that the school can begin accepting pupils as soon as it reopens.
He authorized the State Ministry of Education to take severe action against schools that deviate from the academic year timetable.
“From now on, schools will reopen on Monday, May 2,” Kuyok said. “However, we will use this opportunity to urge schools and instructors to register kids and prepare schools for reopening.”
“On April 4th, schools are closed. Because the academic calendar for private schools is meant to be standardized, state authorities must take action against institutions that attempt to begin before May 2nd.”
