The Minister of Basic Education has published the School Calendar for 2016 in Government Gazette 38146 on 4 November 2014. We published a draft of the School Calendar for 2016 in NF 14/2014 during May this year.
Since then the DBE’s School Calendar Committee carefully considered all of the comments made by individuals and institutions etc. NAPTOSA is an active member of this committee. A recommendation was submitted to the Minister of Basic Education, via HEDCOM,that no changes should be made to the draft. The calendar printed below is final for 2016.
