back to school, kids, school

The Ministry of Education has now released school term dates for both public and private schools up until July 2021

If you’re a parent looking for when to book the next vacation, or a morning motorist that lives for the clear lanes of the school holidays – allow us to dispel some scheduling mystery.

As crazy as it sounds to start talking about Christmas in January (yep, sorry, that just happened), it’s useful even for those without kids to start planning annual leave outside of these dates, as booking travel outside of school holiday dates can save you money. If you’re looking for some globe trott-spiration, check out our latest travel guide.

To stretch out that annual leave allowance with expected public holiday dates, consult our public holiday calendar.

Below are the Ministry of Education-approved term timings for 2019 and the next two academic years. All private schools must communicate tentative public holidays dates to the parents and confirm these holidays once declared by the UAE government.
