Confusion About Summer Vacations in Islamabad Finally Resolved

Summer Vacations

In a perplexing turn of events, the summer vacation schedule in Islamabad became a contentious issue between the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) and the Federal Ministry of Education.

The confusion began with a notification from the FDE, declaring summer vacations from June 10 to July 31. However, conflicting statements soon emerged, with an FDE official labeling the notification as fake, while a Ministry of Federal Education official affirmed its authenticity.

These conflicting positions left parents, students, and educational institutions in a state of uncertainty.

To resolve the confusion, a new notification has been issued, confirming the summer vacation dates as June 10 to July 31.

“The competent authority, i.e., the Secretary of the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training, is pleased to announce that summer vacations for all educational institutions under the Federal Directorate of Education shall commence from 10-06-2024 till 31-07-2024, and schools/colleges will reopen on 01-08-2024,” the notification stated.
