ABU DHABI: The School Operations Sector of Abu Dhabi, affiliated to the Ministry of Education (MoE) has fixed the start and the end of the school day for the three rings based on the timings depending on the transportation provided by Emirates Transport.

The MoE mentioned in a circular received by the school administrations in Abu Dhabi that organising transport for 250 schools would require a high degree of cooperation between the schools and Emirates Transport Corporation.

MoE added, “The time a bus takes to drop students of a certain school and then move to another school, ranges between 45-75 minutes in most cases. Therefore, the timings of the schools sharing the same buses must be adjusted and modified as required.

In mixed schools, timings are fixed either according to the start of the school day of boys wing - 7:15am, or to that of the school day of girls wing - 8:15am.

The ordinary school timings of the first ring at boys’ schools starts at 7:00am and ends at 1:45pm, while the girls’ school usually starts at 8:00am and ends at 2:45pm.

Concerning the second and third ring, the boys’ schools start at 7am and end at 2:35pm.

In girls’ schools, it starts at 8am and ends at 3:35pm, with a 35 minute break between periods.

The ministry added, “Schools are allowed to change the starting times of the school day within those mentioned only after getting the approval of the first manager, the Department manager and the Emirates Transport Corporation, so that the changes do not require additional buses.”

The circular pointed out that a 60-minute difference between the beginning of the school day for boys ‘schools and girls’ schools is good for the optimal use of transportation.
