Lagos announces mid-term break for schools

INSIDEMAINLAND – As a measure to boost teachers’ capacity in Lagos, the State Government has mandated public and private schools go on a week-long mid-term break beginning from Monday, November 1st through November 5th, 2021.

The state government said that schools are to resume on Monday, November 8th, 2021 for instructional learning hours with the schoolchildren, in accordance with 2021/2022 harmonized school calendar, for the state.

This announcement was made by the Director-General, Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA), Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, through a statement made available to newsmen, said that the 2021/2022 calendar was approved to boost education standards in the state.

Seriki-Ayeni said the one-week break would afford schools the opportunity to internally upskill their teachers in various educational and developmental programmes, especially at this time of COVID-19, where learning has gone beyond the physical four walls of the classroom.
