H.E. Dr Mohammed Abdul Wahed Ali Al Hammadi, minister of education and higher education, has said on Wednesday that there won’t be mid-term break in April in the 2017-18 academic year. 


Minister cited shortage of school days this year as the reason in a tweet announcing the decision. The schools started late this year due to the long summer break. 

He also pointed out “substantial changes in the academic calendar” as another reason in the tweet.
