The FCT Administration has clarified that the recent review of the 2016/2017 academic calendar for primary and post primary schools in the Federal Capital Territory affects only public schools.
It would be recalled that the FCT Administration earlier changed the resumption date from Sunday, 4th September, 2016 for boarding schools and Monday 5th September, 2016 for day schools to Sunday, 18th and Monday 19th September 2016 respectively, due to the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations which is expected to take place in the second week of September.
Accordingly, this addition of two weeks only affects the public schools in the Federal Capital Territory.
The private schools in the Territory are at liberty to maintain their resumption and closing dates as scheduled. Thus, this clarification has become necessary to address this issue.
