SCHOOLS TO REMAIN CLOSED TILL 31ST JAN DUE TO SEVERE COLD: PUNJAB

Punjab government on Tuesday announced that all government and private school will remain closed from 26th of January to up until 31st January. The decision by the Provincial government comes in light of the severe wave of cold that has gripped Punjab.
According to Punjab s Minister for Education Rana Mashood, the decision for the closure of schools was made after consensus during high level meeting in view of the extremely cold weather.
However, colleges and universities will remain open as usual.
Mashood stated that the attendance in schools since the past 4-5 days had been extremely low due to the weather.
Meanwhile President of Private Schools Association Kashif Mirza has refused closing the schools saying that the announcement was made late in the night.
Mirza stated that closing schools when final sessions are underway in educational institutions will negatively impact the studies of children.
Routine life in Punjab has ground to a halt due to the extreme cold. The northern areas of the province are experiencing heavy snowfall while fog has blanketed the plain areas. Citizens have complained that its been weeks since the sun has shone with the skies mostly remaining grey throughout the day.
