The Borno State Ministry of Education has asked primary and secondary schools to adjust their calendar and timing.

Alhaji Mustapha Bukar, the State Director of School Services in the ministry, said that the adjustment is because of the fasting period, adding that “schools should now close by noon, instead of 1.30 p.m.

“In light of the ongoing fasting period of Ramadan for the year 1445 AH, it is hereby directed that all primary and secondary schools across the state adjust their daily closing time to noon. Moreover, all non-essential extra-curricular activities should be discouraged throughout the duration of Ramadan.

“Additionally, we kindly request all primary and secondary schools to ensure completion of academic activities, including examinations, for the second term of the 2023/ 2024 academic session by Friday, March 29.”

He said that holidays are slated to commence from Saturday, March 30 to Sunday, April 28.

He added, “Schools shall resume for the third term of the 2023/2024 academic session on Monday, April 29.”
