Thursday 29th October, the Prophet’s Birthday (PBUH), will be a school holiday, Dubai's education regulator, the KHDA has confirmed.
The KHDA tweeted:
“On the occasion of the Prophet’s Birthday (PBUH), schools & laptops will be closed on Thursday October 29. Enjoy the long weekend, and stay safe!”
In the year of Covid-19, time off from school may not have carried the same joy as it has in the past, but this time the three day weekend is simply a holiday, and no doubt will be enjoyed as such.
Students should certainly make the most of it... School resumes on Sunday 1st November!
