College vacation cancelled for flood relief
Lahore, Aug 21: To invite and mobilize youth to support the government in relief and rescue activities in the wake of large scale destruction by the floods in different parts of the province, the Punjab government has cancelled summer vacation of all public colleges.

However, academic activities will not resume with the opening of the colleges.

It is pertinent to mention that the colleges were scheduled to reopen after September 9 after the summer break.

The Punjab Higher Education Department has informed college heads to call teachers and students and engage them in collecting relief goods for the flood affected people and mobilize youth to come forward with clear instruction that no academic activity would be resumed with opening of the institutes.

At the same time the colleges, situated near flood affected areas, would also cater to the dislocated people. According to the department officials, over 15,000 flood affected people had already been provided shelter in government colleges of Dera Ghazi Khan division alone.

They said the department had developed a mechanism under which all the eight Boards of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISEs) would also be engaged for packing and transportation of relief goods to the affected areas.

According to initial reports received by the department, around 9 colleges had been partially damaged by floods in Rajanpur, Muzaffargarh, DG Khan and Mianwali districts. The official said the picture would be cleared after receding of flood water, adding the number of colleges damaged by flood waters might be more than the figures received so far.

They said that, after collection of relied goods, including medicines, teams comprising college volunteers would be dispatched to flood affected areas, adding that the recently formed Youth Commission would also be involved in the whole process.

The official further said that the department was aware of problems being faced by students of flood hit areas as many of them were supposed to get admission to colleges in the provincial metropolis and other big cities for intermediate studies but could not do so in the wake of floods.

Higher Education secretary Ahad Khan Cheema said the government had already postponed the entrance test, scheduled for August 8, for admission to engineering universities and institutions of the province keeping in view devastating floods in different areas of the province.

He said the students failing to get admissions to colleges owing to floods would be facilitated even in terms of fees, however, he added, at the moment, the government was focused on the rescue and rehabilitation of flood affectees.

The secretary said no academic activity would be held at colleges while teachers and students would be mobilized to collect relief goods for the flood affected people and volunteer themselves for the cause.
