Schools had a good idea of where and how to restructure

At Taaleem’s American Academy for Girls in Dubai, principal Lisa Johnson said there had been talk of a new working week for some time. So the schools had a good idea of where and how to restructure.

However, “American Academy for Girls will extend the school day by 20 minutes. To ensure there is adequate time to cover the curriculum,” she said.

“We also consolidated some of our pastoral classes [those that address well-being and emotional welfare] to allow for longer periods on Fridays.

We have spent a great deal of time modifying our master schedule to accommodate. The half-day rather than simply shifting our classes forward one day.”

Moreover, With a largely Emirati population at the school, Ms. Johnson said that initially some pupils. Parents had expressed concern about the new schedule over concerns that it would affect prayer times on Fridays.

At Dubai College, headmaster Michael Lambert said prior to the change. In addition, The school had broadly maintained Dubai’s “historical early finish on a Thursday”.

“As such, we have taken a pragmatic approach to the new working week by shifting each day forward and reducing our extended break time. Our Friday lessons by five minutes to accommodate these new requirements,” he said.

“This will not significantly impact curriculum time for pupils and will allow us to comply immediately.

“I, for one, am looking forward to using the additional time on Friday afternoons for my own personal development.”

Dr. Sheela Menon, principal at Ambassador School in Dubai, said very little has been tweaked at her campus to adjust to the shorter school week.

“As a school, we are very much in alignment with the new four-and-a-half-day week,” she said.
