Summer vacation in Punjab from June 1-30; schools timings changed

Saturday, 14 May 2022 | PNS | Chandigarh

Primary schools to function from 7 am - 11 am; Middle/high/senior secondary to operate from 7 am till 12:30 pm

Reconsidering its decision to pre-pone the summer vacations and holding online classes from May 14 till 31 owing to increased heat wave, the Punjab Education Department on Friday scheduled the summer vacation in government schools on the pattern of the previous years. The Department, taking note of the demand raised by the students, parents, and the teachers, has decided that the classes in the offline mode would be held from May 15 to May 31 in all government, aided, private schools, while scheduling the summer holidays from June 1 to 30.


“Due to the offline classes not being held owing to the COVID-19 pandemic during the last two years, the students’ studies had been adversely affected. Hence, it was the demand of the parents as well as the students to schedule summer holidays as before and desist from the online classes,” said the state Education Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer.


The Minister said that from May 15 till 31, the primary school timings would be from 7 am to 11 am while the middle, high, and senior secondary schools would be open from 7 am till 12:30 pm.


Meet Hayer said that during the course of his daily visits to the schools, he has received the feedback that the studies should continue like this in the schools till May 31.


He added that due to the demand from all quarters, the Education Department has decided to schedule the summer holidays from June 1 to 30. He also mentioned that it is the sincere endeavour of the State Government to take decisions in accordance with the will of the people.
