Minister of Education for Punjab, Murad Raas on Tuesday said that schools across the province might get extended winter holidays.
“I want to open schools. However, we may have to go with the option of extending the closure of schools, given the current circumstances,” added the minister.
He further said that he personally doesn’t want to open schools since the deaths and infection in the province are highest in the country. However, the final decision on this matter will be made in a meeting of the National Command and Control Centre (NCOC), on January 4, 2021.
The meeting will be attended by all provincial educational ministers, civil and military leadership.
