School year to be extended, says minister

The school year will be extended, but not past June, Education Minister Niki Kerameus announced on Wednesday.

She added that the countrywide university entrance exams will take place as scheduled, in mid-June.

“It is the government’s absolute priority to open up schools, especially junior high and high schools,” she said.

Schools, currently providing online instruction, are expected to open again in early April.
