Education Ministry Cuts School Holidays This Year

The Education Ministry (MOE) announced changes to the academic term this year to help schools better plan lessons that have been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the movement control order (MCO) since March.

The MOE said the mid-term break will now only be five days, down from nine days previously.

Produced by: Richard Bradbury

Presented by: Richard Bradbury, Arvindh Yuvaraj, and Christine Wong
