Though experts are saying that leisure travel may not resume until mid-2021, it doesn’t mean you can’t still plan ahead for the family. MOE released the dates for the 2021 school year calendar and in case you missed it, here are all the details.
The school term for all Ministry of Education (MOE) primary and secondary schools next year will start on January 4 and end on November 19. It mirrors the usual schedule for previous years after the disruptions to the calendar this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, including bringing forward the June school holidays to begin on May 5.
For students starting their first year of junior college (JC) or Millennia Institute (MI), the school will start on Jan 29. Second-year JC and MI students begin on Jan 11. Just like before, there will be four vacation periods for schools, JCs and MI.
There will be a total of 10 public holidays and four additional scheduled school holidays – namely Youth Day (July 4), the day after National Day (Aug 10), Teachers’ Day (Sept 3), and Children’s Day (Oct 8). As Youth Day falls on a Sunday, the following Monday – July 5 – will be the scheduled school holiday.
