Winter Vacations In Punjab

Punjab Schools Winter Vacations Extended?

Lahore: In the city of Lahore, there’s a buzz on social media suggesting that the winter break for schools in Punjab might be prolonged due to the chilly weather. However, it’s essential to note that the provincial education department has not issued any official notification regarding this potential extension.

Despite efforts like artificial rain and a Sunday off, Lahore found itself ranked as the world’s most polluted city recently, thanks to soaring smog levels. This concerning situation, coupled with the dropping temperatures, could lead the Punjab government to contemplate extending winter holidays for Lahore and other cities across the province. At present, there’s no official word on this matter.

Winter vacations for schools across Punjab initially began on December 18, 2023, and are scheduled to conclude on Thursday, January 1, 2024.

Contrary to circulating reports, ARY News has revealed that the Punjab government, during a meeting of the School Education Department, has decided against extending the winter vacations. Officials from the education sector believe that prolonging the break would not be advantageous, especially considering upcoming exams for students. They have announced that educational institutions will resume normal operations from January 9.

It’s worth noting that, taking into account the extremely cold weather in the region, the Azad Jammu and Kashmir government has opted for a different approach. They’ve officially announced a further extension of winter vacations for all public and private educational institutions until January 8, providing students with an extra few days of reprieve.
