Parents in Dubai can look forward to a 5-day weekend, with Commemoration Day and National Day combining together at the start of December.

Dubai's education regulator, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), confirmed the three-day school break in the emirate in a tweet.

Schools, it said, will be closed from Sunday December 1st to Tuesday, December 3rd.

We love the KHDA's twitter feed.

Classes will resume on December 4th, when, according to the KHDA's tweet at least, "teachers and students will be excitedly skipping through the school gates again".
