Due to covid-19 pandemic many people have lost their lives and many students’ get stuck in different countries as a student. The KHDA department (The knowledge and Human Development) has publicly stated that those students who are currently unable to return to their respective countries can opt for online learning. The Principle of the GEMS Wellington Academy Nathan Sadler has been told by the KHDA, to process the application of those students’ requests. 

Sadler added that it’s imperative for parents to provide as much detail as possible when submitting their requests. The head of operations at Springdales School Dubai, recently stated that their institution will be offering their classes on the Microsoft Teams platform. This facility will be very useful because there are students who are in the UAE but their families are stuck in other countries due to some reasons. The situation is very tough in many countries and the rapid decrease of employability is also an issue here. Many people have lost their jobs. This is one of the reasons behind the uprising of online learning. Students can take lessons and then they can work from home as well if time permits. Many people have moved to other countries or other states due to job loss in their family. These online classes will be a blessing for them and they can continue to learn even if they are moving out. Maryssa O’Connor, principal and CEO at GEMS Wellington International School and vice-president of education at GEMS Education, said her school is offering the remote learning provision to ensure there are no gaps in students’ learning. “Since the beginning of the pandemic, schools have developed incredibly creative solutions for remote learning opportunities — and no doubt, they will continue to do so," she said. "However, as more students return to face-to-face learning, parents should expect that the delivery of online learning may also change to support a smaller number of students and to enable those children in school to benefit from the new regulations,” O’Connor added.

The vast majority of students returned to in-person learning at the start of the academic year. But some opted to continue with distance learning until October 3, when all Dubai schools will resume full in-person learning. While an exemption has been granted to students who are abroad, some families are requesting the continuation of remote learning on other grounds, as many pupils live with elderly relatives. But schools are still awaiting KHDA’s guidance about these requests. Deepika Thapar Singh, principal and CEO at Credence High School, said: “It is important for all students to come back to school for face-to-face learning. The updated protocols, set by DHA and KHDA, are being followed diligently. All our staff is vaccinated and the health and safety of our students is of utmost importance.”
