Saeed Ghani-the Education Minister of Sindh has ruled out the possibility of winter vacations in Sindh this year.
As per the shared details, the provincial minister said that the students have been given more holidays than usual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Therefore, there’s no question of winter holidays right now,” he said.
He added that a final verdict on the matter will be taken during a National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) meeting scheduled for late November.
Ghani’s statement comes a day after Federal Minister of Education Shafqat Mahmood convened a special meeting of education ministers to take a decision on an NCOC suggestion to announce early and extended winter vacations.
Since there was no consensus, a decision on the matter was delayed till next week.
The Balochistan government, however, has announced early winter vacations today. The provincial education minister said winter vacations will start in December and the new education year will begin three months later, in March.
