The public and private schools will be responsible to follow these directives, which are issued by the honourable court in order to protect the life and health of young students, who are prone to these health-challenging factors.
During the hearing of the case about the prevailing smog position in Punjab especially in Lahore, the court issued orders to Punjab Government for the declaration of 3 Weekly Holidays and Work From Home in Punjab Schools.
LHC expressed their serious concern with the failure of the provincial government to contain smog in Punjab, especially in Lahore. The government and private schools and colleges will remain close for three holidays and during this period, the students will do their work from home to maintain their education as well as protect their lives and health.
