Middle schools in KP closed for summer vacations till further notice

PESHAWAR – The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Monday announced summer vacations for classes up to the middle as the intense heat is making life difficult for young students.

A notification issued in this regard from the Elementary and Secondary Education department stated that all middle schools in the summer zone will remain closed until further orders.

However, the schools up to the higher secondary level in the winter zone of the province will remain open. The decision is equally applicable to both public and private sector institutions.

Meanwhile, Provincial Education Minister Shahram Khan Tarakai said that students will only be taught the subjects for which examination will be given.

On June 11, the Punjab government hinted that summer vacations will be announced within two weeks, as the temperature in a number of cities has been soared up to 45 degrees.
