A Decision has been Made by Punjab University to Extend its Winter Vacations

The Punjab University has decided to extend the winter break for all of its teaching departments, institutes, centers, schools, and constituent colleges due to a sudden drop in temperature. According to the official notification issued by Abdul Hameed Khan, Deputy Registrar (Academics), the university will remain closed until January 8th, 2023.

However, the administrative staff at these locations will continue to work as usual during the winter holiday. This extension comes after the university had previously announced a winter break from December 26th to 30th, with academic activities set to resume on January 2nd.

The Punjab School Education Department (SED) and Higher Education Department (HED) have also announced an extension of winter break for public and private schools and colleges in the province in response to the decrease in temperature. These institutions will now have winter break until January 8th, with academic activities set to resume on January 9th, 2023.

It is not uncommon for educational institutions to close or extend breaks due to adverse weather conditions. In this case, the sudden drop in temperature may have posed a risk to students and staff, leading to the decision to extend the break for the university and schools in the province. Ensuring the safety and well-being of students and staff is of the utmost importance, and this decision was likely made with that in mind.

It is important to note that while the university and schools will be closed during this extended break, administrative staff will still be on duty to ensure that necessary tasks and responsibilities are carried out. This may include things such as preparing for the resumption of classes, handling any necessary paperwork and maintaining the facilities.

Overall, the extension of the winter break at the Punjab University and schools in the province is a precautionary measure taken in response to the sudden drop in temperature. The well-being of students and staff is a top priority, and this decision was likely made with that in mind.
