Dubai schools given leeway over holiday calendars

Dubai's Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has announced private schools in the emirate will be allowed to follow their own holiday calendars, Gulf News has reported. However, the schools must comply with the number of school days and school hours stipulated by the regulators, KHDA said. Any private school in Dubai that is not following the MoE curriculum but wishes to follow their unified calendar for whatever reasons, can choose to do so, provided they get approval from KHDA, the regulator said.
