The 2020-2021 academic year officially began for nearly 23 million students across the country following opening ceremonies on the morning of September 5.

Most schools only organised the ceremonial part and eliminated the festive part to avoid gathering too many students in schoolyards in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
