Pakistan has closed schools across the country for a day on the anniversary of last year's Taliban attack that killed over 150 people, 144 of them schoolchildren, according to ABC News.
Government spokesman Mushtaq Ghani said Wednesday the closure is part of a day of national mourning and a precaution against militant attacks tied to the anniversary.
Pakistan's top civilian and military leadership attended a ceremony in the northwestern city of Peshawar to award medals to the victims' families.
