No respite for Jammu school children
Proposal for early vacations finds no takers in Govt
Jammu, June 1: Even as Jammu and its adjoining hot districts are reeling under severe hot wave for past one week, the proposal for pre-poning summer vacation in the summer zone schools is awaiting Chief Minister’s nod.
Sources in Education Department maintained that in wake of prevailing harsh conditions in Jammu region, the department pushed a proposal for early vacations to the government but the same awaits chief minister’s nod.
“The proposal was moved to facilitate early vacations- atleast by June 3, considering the hot weather conditions but till date the department has not received any communication in this regard” highly placed sources said . They said that there was every possibility that the initially proposed date of June 9 for summer vacations would remain unchanged.
Official sources also denied any plans to reduce the daily school time duration to provide some respite to the children
However, with mercury soaring several notches above normal, many private schools in the city have already announced summer vacations while others are waiting for official order to provide respite to the students from scorching heat. Presently government education institutions are observing timings form 9 am to 3 pm. It was believed that state education department might change school timing by one hour before the scheduled time.
