KHDA announces reduced Ramadan hours for Dubai schools

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has announced reduced hours for Dubai during Ramadan.

Schools across the emirate will remain closed until the end of the 2020/2021 academic year, and students following distance learning programmes, for the most part, fit into the regular timings of the school day

However, during Ramdan, school hours will be reduced from the usual seven hours a day from Sunday to Thursday, to five hours a day.

The KHDA tweeted:



While the hours for a majority of schools will be from 9am to 2pm daily, the KHDA has stipulated that it is up to individual primary and secondary schools to alter the timings to best suit the needs to their parent community.

The educational quality assurance and regulatory authority of the Government of Dubai also encouraged both students and teaching staff to take the opportunity of reduced hours to spend quality time with their families and asked that schools keep this in mind when assigning work to the children.
