Headteachers and parents are preparing for a longer school day next term

In the UAE, the public sector will move to a 4.5-day working week. There are some reports that school are implementing the new weekend schedule, which will fall on Saturday and Sunday. However, school hours have yet to be determined.

School leaders who spoke to The National said it was highly likely that pupils would soon be studying until 3 pm or 3.30 pm instead of 2 pm. To ensure they progress through the curriculum.

Manju Reji, principal at India International School in Sharjah, said she would consider extending by up to 90 minutes.

She said she was waiting for instructions from the regulator, Sharjah Private Education Authority. But needed to plan ahead with just a few days to go before pupils break up for the winter holidays.

The school day currently runs between 7.30 am and 2 pm. Though that may change if a three-day weekend is in place.

School may have to align

Ms. Reji said “For now it is only for the public sector, but schools may have to align.

“We need to accommodate all the changes because we follow the Indian curriculum and have a lot of syllabus to cover.”

From Monday, January 3, 2022, in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, schools will move to a Monday to Friday week, with a half-day on Friday, in line with much of the government sector.

In Sharjah, leaders said on Thursday that its public sector would switch to a four-day working week – the first in the Middle East – and a Friday to Sunday weekend.

On social media, there was much debate among parents as to whether Sharjah schools would give pupils Friday off. If they would go in for several hours – 8 am until 11.30 am for example.

Nora Saleem, a mother of two from Jordan, said: “It would not make sense to give parents a holiday on Friday while their kids go to school. Since the decision is to give more quality time for parents to spend with their children.”

The overcrowded and sometimes shabby Heathrow International Airport contrasted with Dubai’s well-organized and aesthetically pleasing International Airport.

Her, diplomatic private secretary, Michael Alexander wrote the note on Thatcher’s orders. Commenting on Heathrow’s faults and who deserved credit for Dubai’s achievements. The letter is clear and frank in its assessment of Heathrow’s shortcomings.

Heathrow get credit for Dubai’s accomplishments

Apparently sent by Thatcher’s diplomatic private secretary Michael Alexander. The letter holds no punches when it comes to how Heathrow is doing and who should get credit for Dubai’s accomplishments.

“Thatcher used to brief him on nuclear weapons and the Soviet Union threat.” Wrote Alexander, who had more experience briefing her on nuclear weapons and military threats.

According to a note from the Iron Lady’s visit in April 1981, her disappointment with Heathrow was evident. “She questions how Sheikh Mohammed can achieve this when HMG’s experience combined with Heathrow’s inability to achieve it?

“An airport is often the first experience that visitors have of a nation. The prime minister is frustrated by the inadequacies at Heathrow, and suggests that we learn some lessons from Dubai.”

Alexander writes to George Walden, then private secretary to the foreign secretary Lord Carrington, but with a copy to Douglas Hurd, now Lord Hurd, as minister for Europe.

Additionally, It is worth noting that the letter – marked “confidential” – also introduces Lord Fowler to the debate as minister of transport In the early 1980s Heathrow was in a particularly bad state.
