Indian schools in Qatar will reopen on September 9 after the summer vacation as the Ministry of Education and Higher Education has approved a request from the institutions.
The Ministry has also revoked the decision to reduce the upper age limit for KG class admission by one year following the request of Indian schools and allowed them to follow the existing practice.
Further, Indian schools have been exempted from a week-long break in April announced by the Ministry for all schools in the country. This is because the academic year of Indian schools ends in March and students get a break at the end of March.
K C Abdul Latheef, president of Shantiniketan Indian School, and Dr Subhash Nair, convener of Indian School Principals’ Forum have expressed gratitude to the Ministry for understanding the concerns and for the timely decision that supports them.
Indian schools had earlier had announced that they would reopen in the first week of September after the summer vacation. However, a recent directive of the Ministry asking the schools to reopen by the end of August had put the schools and parents under great stress as they had already made arrangements for their return after the vacation.
The new directive gives a great relief to the parents as they do not need to make changes and re-book their air tickets. This special permission is only for this year and all Indian schools are committed to follow from next year the ministry calendar for reopening after the vacation.
