It has been decided to change the time of Punjab’s government, aided and private schools from 22 February. This information was given by Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla here yesterday. He informed that the time of primary schools from Monday will be from 9 am to 3 pm. Middle / High / Senior Secondary schools will open at 9 am to 3:20 am.
The parents supported the government’s decision to reopen the school. It is the time of final revision before the annual examinations and hence the department has decided to change the school time, in view of the continuous demand by parents and teachers.
The Education Minister said that till now online studies were being conducted through various mediums and due to the Kovid epidemic, there was little chance for teachers and students to come face to face in physical form. Pre-board examinations are being conducted in schools and special attention will be paid to students after taking stock of students’ performance. Due to change in school time, students and teachers will get more time for final revision.
