KP Takes U-Turn on Winter Vacations for Schools

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government has backtracked from its decision of not giving winter vacations in summer zone schools. However, with a sudden dip in mercury, KP’s Elementary and Secondary Education Department has now notified winter vacations for schools in summer zones.

All schools in the summer zone will remain closed from 25 December to 1 January. They will reopen on 2 January. Schools in the winter zone, on the other hand, will be closed from 1 January to 15 February. Previously, holidays were only given to summer zone schools.

Thankfully, the provincial government acted in the best interest of students.
