    I think there is still some amount of confusion, as the Khaleej Times says the extension is applicable only for schools following the UAE curriculum, but Gulf News has an exactly opposite version ! So, it is really not clear what is going to happen. Best is to wait for clarification from the school.

    as of now it sounds like only for UAE GOVT schools or schools following UAE GOVT curriculum...

    as usual holidays are a source of major confusion in UAE...:crazy

    Hi Vahee....

    OOEHS website mentions no change in reopening date. So 30th August is still the date we should look at.

    From the looks of the IHS's principal statement given in the Friday's issue of Gulf News, it looks like he is for the change to Sept 23... he mentioned something about compensating the days lost by having school on Saturdays!

    Dr. Farooq Wasil, from GEMS had mentioned in KT that the according to the authorities "the decision" is not for "their" schools.

    What I gathered from the information was that this decision is for school that commence their school year in September, like schools having o-levels - Dubai Scholars, Choueifat, etc. Schools like OOEHS, IHS, Modern High, etc must not be effected by the decision.

    In any case, one must not postpose their dates of coming back to Dubai. Instead... if there is an extended holiday, better get away somewhere else!!!
