Kano State Government has approved the adjustment of the 2021/2022 school calendar for both public and private primary and secondary schools operating in the state.
A statement issued by Deputy Director Information, Aliyu Yusuf disclosed that the adjustment followed the out cry of parents and other relevant stakeholders on the need by the government to allow their wards to observe complete Ramadan Fasting at home during the vacation, considering the significance of the month.
The statement said, accordingly one week will be reduced from the 13 weeks earlier scheduled for the second term, while one week will be added to the vacation which was earlier scheduled to be four weeks will now be increased to five weeks respectively.
“By this adjustment therefore, all public and private primary and post primary schools operating in the state are to be closed for five weeks vacation with effect from Friday April 1, 2022 to Sunday May 8, 2022,” Yusuf added.
He said the Commissioner of Education, Malam Muhammad Sanusi Sa’id appealed to parents and guardians to be extra vigilant on their wards during the upcoming vacation, especially at this critical moment of insecurity.
He also urged them to engage their wards in productive activities as well as to make them busy with extra lessons, listening and watching educational programmes during the vacation.
