Following a difficult final month of studies, peppered with strikes held by the Forum of Regional Parents’ Unions in elementary schools across the country in protest of overcrowding in classrooms, some 1.5 million preschool and elementary school pupils begin summer vacation Wednesday morning.
"The summer vacation is not a break from learning, rather a continuation of learning in a different way," said Education Minister in his statement to students on Tuesday. "Summer vacation is the time to learn about our friends, our values, to invest in our hobbies, and to travel the trails and riverbeds of our beautiful country."
"Dear students, utilize the vacation, stay safe, and come back fresh, with renewed strength. I thank the teachers for a wonderful school year. Have a nice vacation!" concluded Bennett.
