Schools closed till 25th
Lahore: The Punjab government on Tuesday announced closure
of all public and private sector schools and colleges in Lahore for 10 days in a
bid to counter the "dengue threat".
The government has announced that the schools and colleges will re-open on
Meanwhile, private schools' associations have announced that they would
organise anti-dengue spray in their institutes and keep them opened. In case of
resistance from the government, they have stated that they will move court.
On the other hand, parents have criticised the Punjab government's abrupt
decision of closing schools. A concerned parent, a doctor by profession said it was strange that the government took such an abrupt
decision and closed schools without considering the fact that the dengue
attacked either early in the morning or in the evening.
Stating that the government had already suspended the holding of assemblies
before the start of the schools, he suggested that the government could have
opened and closed schools and colleges a bit late and there would have been no
threat of dengue during 8am to 2pm or 9am to 3pm.
Rashida, a mother, said students' precious school days were being wasted
every year in the name of floods and dengue, and regretted that the government
just failed to take measures to counter such emergencies effectively.
She asked what the government would do after 10 days and what would be the
guarantee that the dengue would be controlled during these holidays.
Meanwhile, Punjab Education Minister Mujtaba Shujaur Rehman said the schools
and colleges would re-open in Lahore district on Sept 26 and it would take
administrative action against private schools' managements who would try to open
schools before that. Dawn

Blunders lead to rush at BISE
Lahore: Hundreds of students have been visiting the office of Board of
Intermediate and Secondary Education these days in order to get their papers
rechecked after confession of blunder made by the board administration regarding
the compiling of result of a position-holder.
The BISE announced the
results of intermediate annual exam on Saturday last and on the very next day it
had rectified an error in result of a candidate who subsequently was declared
first in the Humanities Group (Girls).
According to the board

for Women Township was declared first with 940 marks in the said group, Sadia
Arshad, a private candidate was declared second with 933 marks and Neelam Shah
of the Govt Degree College for Women, Kot Radha Kishan (Kasur) remained third
with 917 marks.
After the rectification of
error on Sunday, Sara Abbas (Roll No 530020), a student of Mansoora Model
Intermediate College for Girls became topper with 955 in the Humanities Group
(Girls). On account of the said 'mistake', the BISE management suspended
computer in-charge, Mian Tariq, and initiated an inquiry against him.
The confessed mistake
encouraged the candidates to get rechecked their papers but insufficient staff
deployed to address their complaints adds to their miseries. On the occasion,
parents of the girl students demanded of the government to take action against
board administration and computer consultant Dr Majid Nadeem. "What is the
compensation of our precious time killing and hardships while the mistakes are
at the board's end", said father of a girl student.
According to BISE Controller
Examination Syed Ijaz Hussain Naqvi, they had established six counters to
entertain the complaints of the candidates regarding data posting etc. It may be
mentioned here that BISE for the first time had experienced computerised system
which could be considered as a bad-experience. Resultantly, the students not
only had to face problems in getting on-line forms and taking their roll number
slips but had also the terraced-error doubted them regarding their results as
The controller said that the computer operators were not trained fully. He said Dr
Majid Nadeem was responsible for their training. He informed that they had 30
computer operators and three programmers, adding the errors were not surprising
as every new system got some time to become an efficient one. The controller
added he had requested the computer consultant Dr Majid to chalk out a three
month training programme for the computer operators.
While talking about the late
results of many students, the controller examination said a number of students
submitted their forms with single fee after the due date that's why there
results were late. He said the board had not stopped them to sit in the
examination but their results would be released after submission of dues. He
said some students wrote wrong roll numbers on their answer sheets due to which
they were facing problems regarding their results.
