Rajasthan School will remain closed for the middle term break from October 29 to November 7, Minister for School Education Govind Singh Dotasra said on Wednesday. He also shared the official notice from Rajasthan's Education Department announcing holidays for Diwali on social media.
According to reports, Rajasthan Government had earlier cancelled all holidays except the gazette ones to make up for teaching time lost due to Covid. Wednesday's notice represents a revision of that decision.
As per the official notice, apart from the designated holidays provided in the official holiday calendar of Rajasthan, school heads can give two more holidays which should not disturb any important educational event of the school. In these two holidays, one can be given before the middle term break and one can be given post middle term break.
All educational gatherings in Rajasthan will be conducted after the permission of district administration only. Following the state Covid-19 protocol is mandatory for all organizations.
As per the Department of Education, Rajasthan, schools will follow the winter timings (10 am to 4 pm) from October 16 which originally were to be implemented from October1.
