The Ministry of Education today said that all public schools will be closed for the Easter holiday from Thursday, March 17, 2016  and not March 18 , 2016 as previously communicated.

The early closure of schools is due to the holding of Local Government Elections on March 18, 2016, the ministry noted.

Schools will reopen on Monday, April 4, 2016.

The Ministry says it regrets any inconvenience caused.
