Private schools allowed to collect summer vacation fees

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday ruled in favour of private schools of the capital, allowing them to charge summer vacation fees from students. A single-bench of the IHC had earlier stopped schools from collecting fees from students during the summer break but the Supreme Court had dismissed the order and sent the matter back to the high court. IHC Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb conducted the proceedings.
In May this year, the IHC barred private schools in the federal capital from receiving fees for summer vacations. While hearing a petition, the court had ordered that amount already paid by parents shall be adjusted against fees for the period after vacations.—INP
