Saudi resumes classes in Ramadan after 14 years


Students of all phases of education in Saudi Arabia returned to classes on Sunday during the holy month of Ramadan for the first time after a hiatus of 14 years.

The Ramadan classes come under the third semester of the academic year, which is based on the new academic calendar. According to the new calendar, the 39-week long academic year is divided into three semesters, with 13 weeks for each semester.

The preparations for Ramadan classes come in accordance with the rules of the flexible system for the academic days. The Ministry of Education has activated the principle of family partnership to contribute to the completion and success of the educational process for their children during Ramadan and in the current school year. The ministry approved, in coordination with the concerned government agencies across the Kingdom, the timing of the start of the school day between 9 am and 10 am during Ramadan.
