School Resumption Date in Nigeria 2023

Reason for School Resumption Date in Nigeria

In the Nigerian Education system, students go through classes i.e. from lower classes to higher classes as they progress in their academic career. These classes are otherwise referred to as grades. Each class is made up of three terms: first, second and third terms. There is a break or holiday at the end of each term and the holiday following a third term ushers in a new session. The idea of holidays is to give the pupils and students time to relax their brains and maybe engage in other extracurricular activities.

The holiday after first term is the Christmas break; the holiday after second term is the Easter break. While the holiday after third term is called August or “summer” break.

An official resumption date marks the end of each break and the beginning of a new term or session.

Therefore, many parents and students always want to get information about school resumption date. So they ask questions like:

When will schools resume after Christmas break?

What is the resumption date for Second term in Nigeria?

And so on.

We are going to answer those questions shortly.

The Recent Announcement of School Resumption Date in Nigeria

The Federal Ministry of Education has announced the 8th of January 2024 as the resumption date for the second term of the 2023/2024 academic session. This implies that all public primary and secondary schools are to resume on the above date.

But you would recall that public schools in Nigeria are either run directly by the federal government or by the state government. For example, the unity schools are run by the federal government while other public schools are run by the state government. Then there are also the private schools run by individual proprietors.

The implication of this is that the date set by the federal government may not be binding on all the schools in the country.

So we are to zero in on the states to know the resumption date set by the State Ministries of Education for their primary and secondary schools.
