All private educational institutions in Sharjah will be open only for four days a week, from Mondays-Thursdays, starting January 1, 2022.

The Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) took to Twitter to confirm that there would be a three-day weekend each week for them from Fridays through to Sundays.

“In line with Sharjah Executive Council’s decision, SPEA has approved the new weekend for all private educational institutions in Sharjah to be Friday, Saturday and Sunday effective January 1, 2022,” it said on Twitter.

“Further details will be announced in the coming days.”

Last week, Sharjah declared a four-day work week for public sector employees in the emirate.

It became the first government within the Middle East to declare a permanent three-day weekend for all its employees.

In the neighbouring emirate of Dubai, a four-and-a-half-day working week (with a half day scheduled on Fridays) has been confirmed for its government employees. The emirate’s education regulator, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), said that private schools across Dubai will transition to the new working week adopted by the local government.
