Schools consider six-day week
Karachi: The private schools managements are reported to have decided to review the academic calendar from the next session, sources disclosed to The News. As per the plan, it has been decided to have a six-day school week, by ending Saturday as a holiday.

The decision was taken after recurrent unscheduled holidays almost every other month. Unscheduled holidays include strike calls and, thus, the school management is required to give the day off owing to parental and societal pressures. Secondly, when a national or religious occasion falls on a week day, the Governor announces the day as a school holiday. In the current week, schools will remain closed for three days in the province due to religious and national holidays, including the strike call given by the transporters on March 18.

As per the academic calendar, 12th Rabi-ul-Awal, a public holiday, is falling on a Friday - the last day of the week in private schools. The Governor, Sindh, has reportedly announced a two-day holiday on Thursday, 11th Rabi-ul-Awwal, and Friday, 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal.

Unofficial holidays in some educational institutions on account of strikes have become common now. These have caused confusion among teachers, parents and students, as the annual exams are close. The authorities, however, are tight-lipped over this on-and-off situation.

Moreover, March 23 is falling on a Sunday. The Governor is said to have exercised his authority and declare Monday, March 24, a holiday in lieu of Sunday, March 23. To overcome this crisis, private schools have adopted a solution by asking students to come to on Saturdays. However, sources in the education department said that private schools are thinking about doing away with Saturday as an off day. The News
