In a recent development, it has been announced that both private and government schools in Punjab will observe public holidays on Thursday and Friday.
This decision comes as a response to complaints of eye infection among children, prompting authorities to send them back home.
As per the announcement, Friday will also be a holiday in observance of Eid Milad-un-Nabiﷺ, providing students with an extended weekend.
This move aims to address concerns related to eye discomfort and ensure the well-being of the young learners.
The decision to implement these holidays will be enforced across the entire province, ensuring uniformity in the schedule.
Mohsin Naqvi, CM Punjab, emphasized the importance of prioritizing children’s health and comfort during their school days.
Parents and guardians are encouraged to keep a close watch on their children’s eye health and take appropriate measures to protect their eyes from irritation.
The authorities believe that this step will contribute to a more conducive learning environment for the students and enhance their overall educational experience.
This move is part of ongoing efforts to address concerns related to the well-being of students in Punjab’s educational institutions.
