The purpose of these orders is to keep them protected and warm from cold weather.
Al public and private schools are directed to ensure compliance in letter and spirit.
It is a good step for the Government of Punjab. The weather conditions are severe in the province. Many parents are unable to purchase costly uniforms for their children. It is also necessary to save the children from the extreme cold weather. To save the children from the extreme cold weather, the Punjab Government School Education Department allowed the children to wear any available uniform and dress to keep them warm and safe from weather effects.
Other provincial Governments especially Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan Governments should also issue similar orders. In Balochistan and KPK, there is severe cold in most of the areas especially linked with the cold areas. Punjab Government school education Department already issued orders for no holidays extension till 15th Jan 2023 and orders to resume the studies forthwith.
