There are three terms in a year. The dates for 2024 are:
- Term 1: January 6th – April 5th
- Term 2: April 27th – August 2nd
- Term 3: August 24th – October 25th (ends November 22nd for Form Four)
The children return to their families at the end of every term for a holiday. It is very important that they do go back home and that they get involved in the activities there, whether by looking after animals, assisting with farming activities, fetching water or helping with other household tasks.
We do not want them to lose contact with their home communities but rather maintain links so they see their education in the light of the future benefit they can be to them.
