'Schools to open on Aug 9'

Karachi, July 20: Secretary Education Sindh, Subhago Khan Jatoi disclosed on Thursday that all the private and public schools throughout the province would open on August 9 and a summary in this connection has already been sent to the Sindh Chief Minister.

The decision has been was taken to celebrate the Independence Day on August 14 in schools.

The day has not been celebrated for the past two years in schools as the academic session was changed by the incumbent Education Minister Hamida Khuro, which started on August 15, after summer vacations.

While exercising his powers, the Secretary Education, sent a summary to the Chief Minister Sindh Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim, who also holds the portfolio of School Education. The summary was approved without delay.

For a long time, the issue of opening schools before August 14, remained a topic of debate but could not be implemented. When this correspondent asked the Secretary Education that whether the orders pertaining to opening schools on August 9 would be implemented at all the schools as there were some schools which do not follow the trend, he responded in the affirmative saying that nobody was above the law and any institution that violated the orders would face action . He said that registration of all such schools would be cancelled.

It was also learnt through reliable sources that summer vacations would be shortened to two months, as compared to previous years, when schools were closed during summer vacations for two-and-a-half months. Also when asked whether the decision was taken for this year only, the Secretary replied that a meeting would be held between the stakeholders and the competent authorities. The issue would be settled once and for all to avoid any confusion that prevailed among students and school administrations.

It is pertinent to note that All Private School Management Association and Private School Association held a series of meetings with the Secretary and other authorities regarding summer vacations as it not only affected the Independence Day celebrations, but it also had severe repercussions on studies as well.
