Sindh Gov convenes meeting to decide closure of schools

Sindh Education Department summoned a meeting on Friday to deliberate shutting down schools and colleges to prevent virus spread.

The meeting will be attended by representatives of the private schools association.

During the meeting, the stakeholders will consider recommendations made by the federal government with regard to educational institutes. Earlier this week, the Federal Ministry of Education proposed closing down primary schools from November 24 and secondary from December 2 until January 31 next year.

The committee’s recommendations will be presented before the Inter-Provincial Education Ministers’ Conference (IPEMC) scheduled for November 23.

Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani, on Tuesday, ruled out the possibility of winter vacations this year. He said students have been given more holidays than usual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
