SRINAGAR (KIMS) — The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is likely to announce winter vacation for schools in Kashmir division upto higher secondary level from November 25th.

Sources said, “The Government is likely to announce winter vacation for students upto Class 5th from November 25th, followed by Classes 6th to 8th from December 2.”

They said, “The winter vacation from Classes 9th to 12th (upto higher secondary level) is likely to commence from December 9th.”

The Government considered announcing winter vacation earlier this year due to harsh weather conditions, including cold temperatures and foggy mornings in the Kashmir valley.

The parents and the Private Schools Association had also expressed concerns about the health school children, urging the government to make an early decision.

Earlier, the Kashmir Independent Media Service had reported that the Government will announce winter vacation in Kashmir division within few days. — (KIMS)
