Ramadan UAE: Class timings for private schools updated – News

The new class hours will go into effect after students return from spring break and continue until Eid Al-Fitr.

Private schools in Abu Dhabi will reduce the length of their school timings to five hours throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan, the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) has announced.

ADEK said it has sent the schools a set of guidelines regarding Ramadan timings.

“The school cannot start before 9.30am and must end the school day before or at 3.30pm,” ADEK said in a statement.

”Each school is expected to cover the full content of the core subjects during those hours, and to consult with parents while selecting the appropriate schedule.”

The Ramadan school timings will go into effect immediately after students return from spring break, which is due to begin from Sunday, March 28 and continue till April 8.

Students will resume studies on Sunday, April 11, and the Ramadan timings will continue until Eid Al-Fitr.

The Holy Month is expected to begin on Monday, April 12, or Tuesday, April 13, depending on the sighting of the moon.

Schools have also informed students that the hybrid model of learning, combining both distance education and in-person classes, will continue during the third semester.

Neeraj Bargava, Principal of Abu Dhabi Indian School, said they would open the school from 9.30am until 3.30pm; however, class hours would not exceed five hours, as directed by the education authorities.

“Authorities had given us an allowance of one hour before and after the classes start, so students would be able to maintain social distancing and other Covid-19 protocols,” he said.
