Education Department announces 2022 school calendar

Basic education minister Angie Motshekga has published the new 2022 calendar for South African public schools.

The calendar will see the country’s inland provinces officially begin the school year on 12 January and conclude on 14 December. This equates to 199 actual school days across the four terms including the holidays.

The coastal cluster of schools will start a week later on 19 January and conclude on 14 December, with the extra days made up through slightly longer terms throughout the year.
