Schedule of summer vacations revised in Sindh
KARACHI: The schedule for summer vacations has been revised for educational institutes of Sindh, ARY News reported on Wednesday.
According to details, a session was held with the provincial minister for education in chair, which decided to change the timetable of vacations.
As per the new schedule, the vacations for schools will commence from May 1 and will end on June 30.
The timing of institutes has also been changed to 8:00 am to 02:00 pm.
It may also be recalled the Sindh High Court (SHC) on April 15 barred schools from receiving fees of summer vacations in advance.
“Supreme Court had refunded one-month fees last year but for what reasons charges are being collected this year against the court’s order,” the high court bench remarked.
The high court, in its order, warned issuance of contempt of court notices against the schools’ administration if found involved in receiving advance fees of summer vacations.
On April 8, the Sindh High Court had ordered the privately owned schools to halt recovery of advance fees of more than one month from students.
