Academic year to begin in August

ISLAMABAD: The new academic year for schools will begin from August, Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood said Thursday.

In response to a person’s question on Twitter, the education minister said: “Academic year for schools will start this year from August.” 

Responding further to the question, he said that private schools are free to use any textbook that is in conformity with the Single National Curriculum (SNC) and has a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the provincial government.

Replying to another user who wrote that the new academic year should start from August every year as students return with a blank mind after long summer holidays, he said: “I agree.”
