Punjab Government Declares Schedule for Summer Holidays

Sizzling hot weather due to raised temperature made it difficult for the students to attend their classes. The electricity shutdown has also added to the problem for students attending their classes in summer. Considering these complications of the students, the Punjab Government has issued a notification to declare schedule for summer holidays. The summer holidays will start from 23rd May 2017 in all schools and colleges across the province. The educational institution will re-open on 14th August 2017.  Summer vacations in cold regions, of Punjab such as Kotli Satiyan, will start from 16th July and educational institutions, the same areas, will resume on 29th July 2018.

Unlike the previous years, the period of summer vacation for this year has been extended. The reason for this extension, apart from the extremely hot weather, is also the Holy month of Ramadan which will start in the last week of May. The Ramadan is expected to start on 28th May this year.  

The notification of holidays has been dispatched to all the private and public schools and colleges of the province. All the educational institutions are directed to follow the prescribed schedule of summer holidays. No private or public education institution must remain open during the period of holidays.
