government and private educational institutions across the city observed low attendance on Friday



LAHORE; Saturday, November 05, 2011: Both the government and private educational institutions across the city observed low attendance on Friday owing to the movement of a large number of citizens to their native towns in order to celebrate Eidul Azha with their families.

The government and private schools, colleges, universities, academies as well as different coaching centres witnessed thin attendance, both of students and teachers. The government has announced Eid holidays from 7th to 8th, as well as another holiday of the Iqbal Day on the 9th. Due to a weekend falling before Eid, the citizens will be enjoying a five-day Eid vacation this time.

People going out of the station to celebrate Eid are expected to return to the city at the end of the next week. Talking to Daily Times, several parents said that they were leaving the city early owing to the increase in transportation fares and unavailability of seats near Eid.

Imran Ahmad, father of three, said that he had decided to leave the city today (Saturday), however, he was reconsidering the decision after witnessing the chaotic situation at the bus stands because of the large crowds of people. He added that in order to avoid a similar inconvenience on return, he had decided to come back three days after the third day of Eid.

Talking about the low attendance of students and teachers in educational institutions on Friday, a college teacher, Muhammad Saleem, said, “Studying routine had also been disturbed owing to the low attendance of students as well as teachers. Most of the students remained idle and teachers preferred not to advance with the course work so as not to leave those behind who had left the city for Eid.”

Separately, a university student, Amina, said that she planned to spend the long Eid holidays with her family in the northern areas.
