During the winter break, the online classes of students will not be conducted, which earlier were scheduled from November 27 to December 24 as announced by the federal government.
Last month, the federal government, on the recommendation of the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC), had announced to close educational institutions across the country from November 27, 2020, to January 10, 2021, due to the second outbreak of COVID-19.
Last week, the Punjab Education Minister had indicated that the academic year for schools in Punjab may be extended because of the closures of educational institutions twice this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
While speaking to media after the inauguration of the Digital Continuous Professional Development, he had said that an inter-provincial education ministers’ meet in the first week of January will make a final decision on the reopening of schools.
