ISLAMABAD: 

The Capital Administration and Development Division has announced that schools and colleges in Islamabad will open on Wednesday, 22 days after the end of summer vacations.

The schools and colleges of Islamabad Capital Territory were supposed to open after the end of summer vacations on August 11, but following the long march and sit-ins by two political parties, the vacations were extended four times.

Besides, security officials were given control of around 60 education institutions to use as barracks.

The CADD Additional Secretary Qaiser Majeed last week wrote letter to district government vacate the educational institutes to start the academic activities and resultantly 32 schools got vacated.

Earlier, CADD announced that students of the schools, which are still housing security officials, would be accommodated in vacated education institutes. The schools that would remain closed include Islamabad Model School for Boys (IMSB), I-10/2, Street 13, IMCB, I-10/1, Street 17, Islamabad Model College for Girls (IMCG), F-10/2, Islamabad College for Women, F-10/3, IMCG, G-9/2, IMCB, G-9/4, IMCB, G-9/4, IMCB, G-9/2, IMCG, G-9/3, ICG, F-6/2, IMCG, F-6/2, IMCB, PM Staff Colony, IMCB, F-7/3, IMCG (PG), F-7/3, IMCB, F-8/4, IMSB, F-8/3, IMCG, G-6/4, IMCG, G-6/1-3, IMCB, F-11/3, IMCB, G-10/4, IMCB G-10/3, and IMCB H-9.
