Education Ministry announces schools will close 9 August

The Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture has announced that schools will close, as indicated on the school calendar, on 9 August, and not on 2 August, as indicated earlier by Regional Education Directorates.
The ministry issued a statement saying the wrong dates were forwarded, without the approval or endorsement of the Executive Director.
All Regional Education Directorates that have issued such communication to schools are directed to withdraw their statements immediately - and ensure that examinations continue uninterrupted, as scheduled and with no altercation, by any school, to the set time-tables.
Only the Omaheke Directorate of Education was granted permission to deviate from the calendar, a request which only applies to hostel boarders.
