FDE summer vacation extended

FDE to extend summer vacation till September 13
Islamabad, Aug 09: Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) will issue a formal notification on Monday to extend summer vacation for the students of Islamabad Model and Federal Government colleges and schools till September 13.

Talking to APP, Director General Federal Directorate of Education Shaheen Khan said Minister for Education has already announced extension in summer vacation for which the notification will be issued.

She said now the students will not get the winter vacations of two weeks in December to make up for the lost time in summer.

The decision to scrap the winter vacations will remove concerns of the parents that children will not be able to cover the syllabus.

The summer vacation will be extended due to the Holy month of Ramazan and Eid.

The teachers who went to their hometowns during vacation will benefit from the extension as most of them would have to go again to their hometowns for celebrating Eid if vacations are ended during Ramazan.

Earlier, FDE announced summer vacations from June 18 till August 23. While the vacation for the students from class one to class five were started from June 7 due to scorching summer heat.

Usually, the students and teachers move to their hometowns in vacation and return late even if schools are opened. It is good as they could spend Eid with their relatives, said a teacher.

The teachers said the decision to end winter vacation will help them to complete the syllabus despite the extended summer holidays.

Students are excited on the decision as they will get extra time for completing their homework and for preparation of Eid celebrations.
