Mbabane: Schools will take a break for the Christmas holidays.
The Minister of Education Lady Howard Mabuza has announced that schools will close for the upcoming Christmas Holidays on Friday, December 10, 2021, and reopen on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
Minister Mabuza said, “The Ministry of Education notes in appreciation all the efforts that parents and teachers have put towards the reopening of schools. We thank teachers for working tirelessly in helping learners acquire maximum knowledge and skills in the short time that schools have opened.”
She further added, “I request all parents and guardians to encourage and support their children to study even during this holiday break. They need to create an enabling environment for their children to study. We, therefore, bank on their support in ensuring that learners engage more with their school work at all times.”
The legislator then highlighted that as a Ministry they believed that learners do not have to slack off on study while on school holidays. She said end-of-term breaks are a time when learners can clear their heads, relax a little and stretch their brains in different ways.
She concluded, “However, letting a study routine slip means they are missing out on a huge opportunity to get ahead. Therefore, I encourage learners to take this holiday break as an opportunity for them to revise their school work and study further in preparation for their examinations.”
