Educational institutions in Dubai were decided to resume physical education lessons, school trips, and different extracurricular activities from Monday (Jan.31).
According to the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) resolution issued on Friday, new rules will be applied to early childhood centres and universities within the Emirate of Dubai.
The KHDA tweeted on Friday, “Because of the help and cooperation of parents, educators and students, PE classes, gatherings, trips and extracurricular activities will be resumed as of Jan.31.”
The tweet added, “Canteens and eating areas will be reopened. This applies to all personal faculties, early childhood centres and universities in Dubai.”
It is worth mentioning that such activities were suspended as a precautionary measure, amid the surge in COVID-19 infections across the UAE.
Government and private schools following the curriculum of the Ministry of Education, kindergartens and adult education likely received more than 1,119,000 students on Sunday.
To provide parents, students and staff members in private schools in Dubai with an effective and convenient mechanism to address COVID-19 related queries, the Dubai Health Authority has launched a dedicated 24/7 back-to-school helpline at phone number 800588.
The launch of this service reinforces the authority’s commitment to provide effective communication channels to the community, offering timely and accurate health information.
While schools and classrooms might not look and operate quite the same as earlier in the year, given the numerous health and safety measures in place, students and teachers were still visibly pleased to be reunited and learning together once more.
