assam summer vacation: Assam government announces early summer vacation for schools

Every school kid looks forward to the summer vacation with joy and immense happiness. Recently, though, summer vacations in many places have been curtailed to make up for the academic loss faced during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Assam usually declares summer vacation in the first week of July, but this year it is being announced a bit early. Examinations being held in many schools will end this Saturday, after which all schools will remain closed from June 25 to July 25 for summer vacation.

Earlier, the exams were scheduled to be held on June 21 and 22, but now after the postponement of the exam dates, a new circular regarding the new exam dates will be soon announced by the University.

The Education Minister of Assam, Ranoj Pengu, has asked all the private schools to follow the vacation order. Summer vacation in the state is to be announced for all elementary, secondary, higher secondary and senior secondary schools.
