FDE Announced Summer Vacations for Schools

For all federally-controlled educational institutions, the Federal Directorate of Education (FED) has scheduled a 12-day summer break.

The Director Academic, Sadia Adnan, issued a notice on this issue on Tuesday stating that educational institutions will stay closed from 18 July to 1 August, after the resumption of educational activities on 2 August.

The break of 12 days includes holidays in Eid-al-Adha.

It also announced a promotion policy that will advance students in Classes 1 to 7 without a test. To maintain its records, the directorate has ordered all schools to carry out four assessments of their students. The policy also states that, regardless of the assessment, no student shall be failed.

Furthermore, during the summer holidays, only students can use the training for the teacher during the break on the new uniform curriculum.


The policy has been criticised by educational circles, who note that running schools in the scorching heat are unwise. In addition, the Punjab Government opposed this decision, stating that from 2 July to 2 August, the holidays should be for at least one month.
