  • The start of Term I for S.1, S5, and year I for Technical/Farm Schools and Community Polytechnics will be communicated in due course.
  • Teaching and learning should start promptly at the beginning of the school terms, and these should not be cut short without clearance from my office.
  • All Headteachers of Boarding Schools, especially those in Kampala City, Mukono, and Wakiso districts, should ensure that they stagger the starting dates for different classes over the week preceding the official opening and closing dates of the terms. This is intended to mitigate the inconveniences of traffic congestion.
  • All school open days and other annual functions should be set by individual schools and institutions during the second school term.
  • Schools and institutions should sensitize parents and other stakeholders about the school Calendar.
