The All Pakistan Private Schools Federation (APPSF) has rejected the summer vacation schedule announced by the Punjab government. APPSF President Kashif Mirza has said that the Punjab government’s summer vacation schedule collides with the APPSF’s syllabus calendar, which is of 240 days. Therefore, APPSF will follow its own schedule.
The Punjab government had announced that summer vacations in the province will be observed from June 6 to August 20. However, the APPSF has said that its schools will remain closed from June 15 to August 14.
Mirza has said that the Punjab government has not consulted the APPSF before announcing the summer vacation schedule. He has also said that the government’s schedule is not feasible as it will disrupt the academic calendar.
The APPSF has threatened to take legal action if the Punjab government does not change its schedule.
The issue of the summer vacation schedule has been a contentious one in Punjab for many years. In the past, the government and the APPSF have been unable to reach an agreement on the matter. This year, it remains to be seen whether the two sides will be able to resolve the issue.
The rejection of the government’s summer vacation schedule by private schools in Punjab is a major setback for the government. The government had hoped that the summer vacation would give students a much-needed break from their studies. However, the APPSF’s decision means that students will have to continue studying for an extra month.
The issue of the summer vacation schedule is a complex one. There are a number of factors that need to be considered, such as the weather, the academic calendar, and the availability of teachers. It is important for the government and the APPSF to reach an agreement that is in the best interests of students.
In the meantime, students and parents are advised to follow the schedule announced by the APPSF. The APPSF has said that it will not be responsible for any inconvenience caused to students if they attend school during the summer vacation.
