The Lagos State Ministry of Education has approved the school calendar for the 2020/2021 session.

The details of the school calendar in Lagos were released in a statement by Olaniran Emmanuel, the Head of Public Affairs, Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA).

Public and private schools below the tertiary level will resume the First Term academic activities on Monday, 21st September 2020, while the term runs through Friday, 18th December 2020.

The Second Term starts on Monday, 4th January 2020 and runs through Friday, 6th April 2021, while students will resume for Third Term on Tuesday, 4th May 2021 and close on Friday, 6th August 2021.

The Director-General, OEQA, Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, urged school leaders to have a qualitative health and safety plan to help protect students, teachers and workers.

She said it is not enough to “reopen but to keep staying open since some schools all over the world had to shut down after reopening due to a spike in the pandemic.”

“All schools must make efforts to comply with these requirements, not just for the improvement of the overall school operations but for safe reopening for academic activities to support the Lagos State Government quest for a full return.”
