NEW DELHI: Bihar education department has issued a clarification regarding school holidays for the academic session 2024. It clarified that there will be no changes in the number of holidays this year and schools have always remained open and celebrated the birth anniversaries of great men. The education department made the clarifications after observing rumors around the recently released school holiday calendar 2024.
According to the holiday calendar, the summer vacation in Bihar schools will be for 30 days unlike 20 days last year from April 15, 2024 to May 15, 2024. All school heads, teachers and other staff will be required to be present in schools during the vacation.
“The holiday table for the year 2024 has been prepared by the education department. The basic principle behind making the holiday table is that all the holidays in the school have been decided by looking at the government holidays fixed for the year 2024 by the general administration department,” said the education department in an official notification.
The education department said that various types of rumors are being spread on social media regarding the holidays. The situation is that two separate calendars have been created for general schools and Urdu schools. “Perhaps this is the reason why this confusion regarding festivals has spread due to hasty reading of government notifications through social media and forming an opinion on them,” it added.
