N-PABSAN urges govt. not to give holiday in schools on Sunday


Kathmandu, May 14 (RSS): National (PABSAN), a non-profit making organization of private schools in the country, has appealed to the government to revoke the decision to give two days of holiday in a week (Saturday and Sunday) in schools.    

The incumbent government has decided to provide two days of public holiday in a week effective from May 15.    

N-PABSAN, issuing a press statement here today, requested the government to reconsider the decision, arguing that regular teaching-learning activities were adversely affected for nearly two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.    

It is of the view that the provision of two days of holiday in a week would further affect the teaching-learning activities and urged not to take any decisions that would make an adverse impact for the long run.     

Furthermore, N-PABSAN expressed its grievance for taking the decision unilaterally and urged to withdraw the decision, claiming that it would make an adverse impact on the annual working day and working hours of the schools, as well as such decision, would put undue pressure on parents, teachers and students.
