A Welcomed Extension for Students and Families
The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai has announced an extended spring break for most school students, setting the stage for a three-week hiatus from March 25 to April 15. This extended break, coinciding with Ramadan and the anticipated Eid Al Fitr holidays, is a first for Dubai private schools that commence their academic year in September.
Aligning with Religious Observances
The 2024 spring break schedule aligns with the holy month of Ramadan, expected to begin around March 11 or 12, and includes the Eid Al Fitr holidays, likely starting on April 8 or 9. The official dates will be confirmed through traditional moon sighting methods closer to the event.
Flexible Scheduling for Varied Academic Calendars
Schools following an April-start academic calendar, such as Indian and Pakistani schools, have the flexibility to close at any point in March. However, they must meet the required number of school days and obtain KHDA approval. This ensures that students receive a full educational experience, regardless of the extended break.
Bridging Classes for Continuity of Learning
Students transitioning from Grades 9 to 10 and 11 to 12 will benefit from bridge classes during the break, ensuring an uninterrupted learning journey. This strategy is part of the authority’s commitment to maintaining academic standards while respecting cultural and religious practices.
The KHDA’s announcement is a reflection of the UAE’s dedication to accommodating its diverse population’s educational and cultural needs. This extended spring break not only provides respite for students but also allows families to plan for quality time during the significant period of Ramadan and Eid.
