More lessons needed for school year to start in January

PARENTS, teachers and students will need to sacrifice their time or double up on lessons in school if they want the academic year to start in January before 2026, National Parent-Teacher Association president Mohamad Ali Hasan said.

He said this after the Education Ministry announced that the academic year will only begin in January in 2026. Until then, the school year will start in March for 2024, while the 2025 session will begin in February.
