Students of classes nine to 12 and O and A Levels across Pakistan returned to school on Monday, January 18, after a break of almost 53 days. Strict implementation of SOPs is being ensured at schools and temperatures of students are being checked at the entrance and social distancing is being practiced.
Last week, Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood announced that primary to grade eight and universities will reopen from February 1. In a tweet on Monday, he wished all the students returning to school good luck. “Their future is our main priority,” he said.
In a recent NCOC meeting, the education ministers of all provinces agreed that no students will be passed without exams this year. For this reason, grades nine to 12 were reopened earlier as these students will soon be appearing for assessments.
