The Lagos State government has directed schools (both public and private) in the state to observe the mid-term break for the 2022/2023 second-term academic session from February 24 to March 3, 2023.
The state government gave the order via a statement issued on Tuesday by the Director General of the Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA), Abiola Seriki-Ayeni.
Seriki-Ayeni noted that the directive was contained in the harmonised academic calendar for 2022/2023 approved by the Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Folashade Adefisayo.
“We, the OEQA, Ministry of Education wish to remind stakeholders that the mid-term break will commence on Friday, February 24 and the directive is applicable to public and private schools across Lagos State.
“This compliance is mandatory for all schools below tertiary level in the state, while emergency preparedness and safety precautions should be in place,” she added.
The OEQA DG, however, urged schools and parents to follow the Lagos State Government social media handles as well as the OEQA website for latest development.
