Schoolchildren in government and private schools will start their summer break on July 2.

That's according to the Ministry of Education, which stated that all private schools that implement the ministry curriculum, along with government schools, will start their end-of-term break as scheduled despite the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Officials also confirmed that teachers and staff will begin their break a week later and the last working day for them will be July 9.

It said there had been no change to the original dates announced earlier.

Meanwhile, schools have shifted to an online approach where students have been engaging in remote learning by having live sessions with their teachers, as well as studying from downloadable material.
