Sindh education department won’t give winter vacations or close schools

The Sindh Education and Literacy Department has decided not to close schools for the time being or have any winter vacations at all this year, it emerged after key stakeholders in the provincial education sector met here on Saturday with Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani in the chair.

However, schools that wish to move their educational activities online have been allowed to do so.

Ghani said after the meeting that the Sindh Education Department’s decision represented the province’s position and that a national decision on the matter would ultimately be taken on November 23, when representatives of all provinces are to meet and debate the issue.

It was further decided in the meeting that students will not be promoted again without them sitting for examinations.
