UAE: The public and private school calendars for the next three years have been announced by the Ministerial Council for Development.
Private schools with foreign curriculum has been awarded a marginal break of no more than a week (more or less) than the dates approved in the school calendars. However, the school must get an authorization from the relevant education authority in their emirate.
The school calendar has been approved following a thorough and detailed study on the requirements of the teaching and education process and is in line with the MoE’s vision in fulfilling an efficient learning process.
