Private schools with foreign curriculum and public schools in UAE are off from December 16 and the school will reopen on January 6, according to the UAE Ministry of Education’s (MoE) 2018-2019 academic year calendar. Students are in for a three-week-long treat as winter holidays for UAE private schools are coming up.

After seeking approval from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority private schools in Dubai were allowed to reduce winter break by two weeks or extend to four weeks.

Many pupils have decided that rather than using the time to get ahead in their studies they will spend their long-awaited winter holidays ‘de-stressing’.

“School students are engrossed in studies most of the time. Their schedules are fully packed during the weekends, leaving no time to stretch. Most of the children have a regular routine, from morning to midnight, from school to study tables then to tuition centers and so on.

“Winter vacation is better than summer vacation, though the number of holidays is less. It has suitable climate for going trekking and hiking. It is also the starting of Dubai shopping festival and also a good time to visit Global Village.

“Loading up students with homework during the winter vacation would affect their social life and minimize their time to spend with family and friends. Keeping in mind the proverb ‘an idle mind is the devils workshop’, students should get minimum number of vacation assignments and worksheets. So that they will get time to engross in other wonderful activities, helping them develop their skills at the same time to improve their academic results,” said Ashna Presanth, a 9th grade student at the New Indian Model School.
