From Monday 31st January, schools and nurseries may reintroduce field trips and extra-curricular activities, as well as performances and gatherings.
School canteens, cafeterias and common eating areas are also permitted to reopen, much to the relief of many parents.
School and nursery leaders have expressed happiness and relief at the announcement.
Giles Pruett, Executive Principal at The Arcadia School, Dubai, said:
"Arcadia schools are delighted that we will be returning to term one learning conditions as the Omicron wave is softening. Our students have really missed their extra-curricular activities and sports and have found it frustrating to be confined to indoor learning spaces. This is fantastic news for us all."
Roshi Tandon, CEO, Deira Private School and Chubby Cheeks Nurseries also commented:
"We are thrilled that sports and field trips are back. From 7th February, our schools and nurseries are celebrating Children Mental Health Awareness week and undoubtedly physical activity, fresh air and learning without walls will enhance the wellbeing of the student community in Dubai."
