Following the decisions made in Sindh and Punjab, the Federal Education Ministry has now declared extended holidays for both public and private educational institutions in Islamabad.
As per the official notification, educational institutions falling under the purview of the Federal Education Ministry are scheduled to remain closed from 6 to 9 February (Tuesday to Friday). Additionally, 5 February (Monday) has been declared a public holiday. Students abstaining from classes on 10 February, Saturday, can enjoy a continuous break of 8 days, spanning from 4 February, Sunday, to 11 February, Sunday.
