Punjab will have new school hours starting on October 15th.
In consideration of the impending winter and ongoing smog, the Punjab School Education Department on Monday decided to alter school hours beginning on October 15 throughout the province.
According to information, all public and private schools for boys in Punjab will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday. The hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday.
In a similar manner, girls’ schools will open fifteen minutes earlier than boys’ schools and operate from 8:15 am to 1:45 pm.
However, the Secretary of School Education will soon provide proper notice of any changes to the hours of the schools.
