Academic session starts amid heavy rain

KARACHI, Aug 10: The academic session started here amid heavy rain, as all public and private educational institutions of the city, including colleges, were opened on Thursday after the summer vacation.
Following the directives of Sindh Chief Minister Dr Ghulam Arbab Rahim, the educational institutions were opened one week earlier, from August 16 to August 9. This decision was taken on request of the private schools managements to prepare their students for the celebrations of the Independence Day.

Despite the declaration of emergency in the city in the view of the met office forecast for heavy rains, the education department did not take any step to relieve students by enhancing vacation for two or three days more.

The turn up of teachers and students remain thin. The rains caused difficulties for students and their parents, as the rain water accumulated in the main streets of the city, causing worse traffic jam and shortage of public transport.

In this regard, an official told The Nation that principals of all colleges had been directed to ensure the presence of the teaching and non-teaching staff.

However the Meteorological Department has already said that coastal areas of Sindh were receiving heavy rains with thunderstorm under the influence of a strong monsoon weather system, the rainy spell in Karachi would be continued for next 24 hours.

President of All Private Schools Management Association Sindh (APSMAS) Syed Khalid confirmed that the only 50 percent students were present on the first day of the academic session. SYED JAFAR ASKARI (The nation)
