KARACHI: Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani has requested the private school associations to follow the decision of the federal government and all the provinces to open educational institutions on September 15.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Saeed Ghani said that the Federal Minister for Education and the Education Ministers of all the provinces had consulted all the provinces in the meeting of the National Coordination Committee and included educationists and health department doctors and others.  After consultation with the government, it was decided to open educational institutions across the country on September.

In this regard, another meeting of the committee has been convened on September 7, which will decide in view of the current situation.

He said that this decision has been taken keeping in view the health of the children and not to harm the children in any way due to the situation after the coronavirus.
