Beat the Heat! Summer Vacation in Punjab Starts Early in 2024

Great news, students of Punjab! Summer vacation is here a little earlier than expected this year. To keep everyone safe from the scorching summer heat, the Punjab government has announced an update to the school calendar.

Here’s the scoop:

  • Originally, summer vacation was scheduled to begin on Saturday, June 1st, 2024.
  • Due to the heatwave, schools will now close earlier, starting on Wednesday, May 25th, 2024.
  • Schools will reopen on Thursday, August 15th, 2024.

This means you get an extra week of summer fun to enjoy! But there’s a small exception. If your school is currently holding exams, they can stay open this week to finish them up.

Why the Early Start?

The Punjab government cares about your well-being. With temperatures rising fast, they decided it’s best for students to stay cool and safe at home during the hottest part of the day.

So What Now?

Get ready for some splish-splash fun! Here are some ideas to make the most of your extended summer vacation:
