Thiruvananthapuram: The general education department has informed that schools across Kerala will function on Saturday, August 20. The department has decided to declare Saturday as a working day for all schools as teachers need to complete pending portions before Onam holidays.
In July, schools remained shut for many days due to heavy rains. Hence, most schools need to cover the pending syllabus before the first term examination.
The first term examination will commence on August 24. After the exams, the schools will close for Onam holidays on September 2 and reopen on September 12.
