Tweet of Mr. Shafqat Mahmood Federal Education Minister
Education and Health Ministers meeting again tomorrow to review the coronavirus situation before students start coming to school. While I desperately want education to continue the final decision will be on health grounds. Students’ well-being will always be a priority.
There are many chances that the SSC and HSSC classes will open on 18 Jan as per the announcement of the opening of educational institutions by the Government. I shall share the updates of the decision of the committee on 15-01-2021 (In Sha Allah). I hope they will decide in favor of the students and classes will start. There will be no more holidays.
