Punjab, KPK announce schedule for winter vacations


LAHORE/PESHAWAR – Minister for Education Punjab Murad Raas on Friday announced that the winter vacations for all private and public schools across the province would be observed from December 23 to January 6, 2022.

While announcing the schedule, the education minister also advised the citizens to get vaccinated and follow standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the government, as Pakistan has reported two cases of the new coronavirus variant Omicron.

On the other hand, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’ Minister for Elementary and Secondary Education Shahram Khan Tarakai said that winter vacations will be observed from January 3 to 12, 2022 in plain areas, and  “in hilly regions, vacations will be from 24 Dec to 28 Feb 2022”.

Earlier in the day, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) had decided January 3, 2022, as the date for the commencement of winter vacations at the educational institutions across the country.

Last week, Sindh had announced winter vacations for all private and public educational institutions from December 20 till January 1, 2022.
