Punjab Education Minister Shares Update on Early Winter Vacations, Three-Day Weekend

According to Punjab’s education minister, Murad Raas, the country’s most populous region’s increasing smog may cause schools to close early.

Lahore, the city of gardens, was recently named the most polluted city in the world; due to the unclean air, residents frequently complain of nausea, stinging eyes, and shortness of breath.



The education minister clarified that despite the deteriorating air quality, schools could not be closed right away because many institutions were in the middle of midterm exams.

The idea of a three-day weekend off was also rejected by Raas, who claimed that they would instead teach students to wear face masks similar to those that were worn during the COVID pandemic.

The Lahore High Court issued a two-day closure order for educational institutions in the provincial capital on Friday because the city’s air quality index was above 300, which is dangerous.

The province’s public and private educational institutions have already made their schedules for the upcoming winter break public. The country’s most populous region will have 24 districts with closed educational facilities from December 23, 2022, to January 6, 2023, and from January 3 to 13, respectively.

School and colleges are supposed to close from December 23 to January 6, 2023, in these cities: Lahore, Sahiwal, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Pakpattan, Sheikupura, Okara, Vehari, Khanewal, Khushab, Hafizabad, Multan, Toba Tek Singh, Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar, Sargodha, Mandi Bahauddin, and Lodhran.

Winter break will begin on January 3 for two weeks in Rajanpur, Jhelum, Mianwali, Attock, Muzaffargarh, Chakwal, Bhakkar, Rawalpindi, Rahim Yar Khan, DG Khan, and Chiniot.
