The academic year the KG and Primary starts from 25th January, 2022 and ends on 11th December, 2022. The First Term will start from 25th January to 17th April whiles Second Term begins from 4th May to 7th August. Term Three will start from 6th September and ends on 11th December, 2022. This includes public holidays.

The year starts from 18th January, 2022 to 11th December, 2022. Thus the first semester begins from 18th January to  12th June. While second semester for the JHS starts from 6th July to 11th December.
