Many schools in the UAE have announced extended holidays for students during the upcoming holy month of Ramadan, which is expected to begin on March 23.
Several schools will either have their spring break during this time or remain closed after the academic year. The holy month is predicted to last for 29 days, with the first day of Eid Al Fitr likely to be on April 21. UAE residents can expect a four-day weekend for the Islamic festival, with the break likely from April 20 to April 23.
The coinciding of the break with Ramadan is expected to be beneficial for students’ spiritual journey, as it will provide them with the opportunity to focus on their spiritual practices without the added stress of school assignments and deadlines.
