Pry schools to remain closed for four days

All primary schools across the country will remain closed for four days due to the ongoing severe heat wave.

All classes in the primary schools will be suspended for four days from today to Thursday, considering the health benefits of the students amid the scorching heat, said a press release from the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education on Sunday.

Earlier, all matches of the Bangabandhu and Bangamata Gold Cup Primary School Football Tournaments across the country were suspended for the same reason. The tournament was supposed to begin on Saturday.

Severe heatwave is sweeping across the districts of Rajshahi, Naogaon, Nilphamari and Dinajpur. It is likely to continue.

Meanwhile, a mild to moderate heatwave is sweeping through Dhaka, Mymensingh, Khulna and Barisal divisions, the rest of Rangpur and Rajshahi divisions, and the districts of Moulvibazar, Chandpur and Noakhali, according to the Bangladesh Meteorological Department’s morning bulletin.
