Even though we are still dealing with the pandemic the government has made it pretty clear that they want schools to resume learning in January after a year of disturbances. Schools will open next week on 4 January for most students except of course Form Ones and Form Five students who will have to first complete exams and wait for results. While Grade 7 students have completed exams, Form Fours are still at it. Form Ones are expected back in February while it’s not clear when Form Fives will be able to start.
