The latest updates of NCOC Decision Regarding Winter Holidays 2021-22, the Government has issued. According to the NCOC Winter vacation 2021-2022 will start with effect from 3rd January 2022.
NCOC Decision Regarding Winter Holidays 2021-22
A meeting of NCOC chaired by Mr. Asad Umar (Chairman NCOC), to review the rescheduling of winter vacations of education institutes was held at NCOC on 17 Dec 21. Federal Minister Education Mr. Shafqat Mehmood, SAPM Health Dr. Faisal Sultan, and all other stakeholders were in attendance. They have decided that winter vacations for education institutions will commence from 3 January 2022 (except in areas affected by extreme weather conditions or fog). Provincial entities will notify accordingly.
Reason for the Deciion
They have taken this decision to maximize vaccine uptake amongst students in educational institutions. This they can achieve in the best way when schools open. Millions of students remain unvaccinated, and data suggest that children may be susceptible to infection. Parents should ensure the vaccination of their children at the earliest to protect them and those around them. Additionally, global trends regarding the spread of the Omicron variant suggest that an upsurge of cases typically happens within a few weeks of the detection of the variant. In light of this information, it will be prudent to schedule winter vacations in Pakistan in January to coincide with the potential uptick of cases. This will allow for minimal disruption of educational calendars if there is a surge in cases.
All citizens should get their vaccinations, including those who have not yet gotten their second doses. Complete vaccination offers the highest protection against the disease.
