PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
ANAMBRA STATE MINISTRY OF BASIC EDUCATION
His Excellency Chief Dr Willie Obiano and the members of the Executive Council have approved the gradual resumption of schools in the state. To this end, the Ministry of Basic Education hereby releases the approved timetable for the completion of 2019/2020 Academic session, as well as the schedule for the State Examinations.
The 3rd term is quite short and we expect schools to make maximum use of the time. We had continued to teach our children at home through various e-platforms including the Anambra State Teaching on Air. These various platforms shall be continued as we do a phased re-opening of schools and watch the health implication.
We enjoin parents to provide hand sanitizers and face masks for children.
Let’s work together for the safety of all.
