New school calendar not for private schools – FCTA

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, September 4, 2016 for boarding schools and Monday September 5, 2016 for day schools to Sunday, 18th and Monday September 19, 2016 respectively, due to the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations which is expected to take place in the second week of September.

FCTA on Friday said the addition of two weeks only affects the public schools in the Federal Capital Territory.

It added that private schools in the Territory are at liberty to maintain their resumption and closing dates as scheduled.
