Islamabad
Most of the government and private educational institutions in the capital city will resume classes today (Monday) after a prolonged break.
The local schools, colleges and universities has suspended academic activities over terrorist threats in the wake of the December 16 Taliban attack on a Peshawar educational institution, which left 151 people, including 132 children, dead.
The Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) first announced the closure of government and private educational institutions in the city from December 22 to December 31 but later extended their reopening until January 12 for security reasons.
Now, the government schools will resume classes today (Monday). However, some private schools and colleges will remain closed for some time insisting they will reopen campuses only after strict security checks are in place.
The CADD oversees the capital’s government schools and colleges through the Federal Directorate of Education and private ones through the Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority. The city has more than 400 government and around 1,000 private schools.
Among the universities resuming academic activities today are International Islamic University Islamabad, Federal Urdu University of Arts Science and Technology and Bahria University.
However, Quaid-i-Azam University will reopen its campus in the city tomorrow (Tuesday), the National University of Modern Languages on January 26 and the National University of Science and Technology on January 19.
