‘The school will remain closed on 18th Aug.’
Is this a correct sentence ? If it is correct ,then what is the rule of ‘Grammar’ followed

Itr is correct if it is clear that the school is closed prior to this date. For example.
Although the holidays end on 28th August, school will remain closed on that day for training. (It is obvious that school has been closed up to that date for the hiolidays).

Can we also say 18th of August?

Aside from having no OF.

Thank you so much.


In fact, if you were saying it aloud, many people would include ‘of’ even if it weren’t written with the ‘of’.

Although I wrote ‘on 28th August’ I would be likely to say
on the 28th of August…
if I were reading it aloud.
