Marking the start of the new academic year (2023-2024), more than 290,000 students and 23,492 educational professionals, begin classes today (Aug 28) in government schools across the UAE.

Sarah Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology and the chairwomen of the Emirates Schools Establishment, congratulated both the students and educators on the start of the new academic year, wishing them “a distinguished start to a year full of accomplishments and excellence”.

The minister emphasised the importance of continuing the educational process with diligence, determination, and perseverance to ensure success.

Supporting school students

“The UAE bets on all of you while sparing no efforts to deliver the future,” she addressed the students, while hailing the essential role played by the parents, being a vital partner in supporting country-level efforts to sustain the development of the public education sector.

In other new, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has launched a back-to-school health awareness campaign from August 17 to 31.

The campaign offers parents and students with insights into the significance of adopting healthy lifestyles as they return to school, emphasising the benefits of physical activity, a balanced diet, regulated sleep patterns, and controlled electronic screen time.

In collaboration with the ministry’s representative offices across the UAE, six community events were held at Lulu Hypermarkets. Additionally, an exclusive awareness session was organised specifically for MoHAP employees.

These events involved a series of activities, including healthy cooking workshops for parents and children, guided by expert chefs, where they learned how to prepare nutritious school meals.
