Move to shift X'mas holidays cancelled

Special Correspondent

JAIPUR: The Rajasthan Government on Thursday decided not to go ahead with a proposal to shift the Christmas holidays in schools in the State to the first week of January. The proposal to shift the holidays from January 1 to 11 during the academic year 2010-11 was reviewed by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot following various sections, including the managements of schools run by the members of the Christian community, approaching him with such a demand.

The Government seemingly realized the adverse potential of the move when a team of Christian leaders led by Jaipur Bishop Oswald Lewis called on Mr. Gehlot to explain him how the preparations for Christmas would be affected if they have to attend to school duties during that period. This was especially when the Government was planning to hold the half yearly examinations in schools from December 15 to 31. Though sources in the Education Ministry are not divulging the reason for the move, they reveal that it was discussed at various levels.
