Kuwait Ministry of Education Announces School Holidays and Education Calendar for 2023-2024

The Ministry of Education in Kuwait has officially released the school holiday and education calendar for the academic year 2023-2024, providing students, parents, and educators with the much-anticipated schedule for the upcoming year.

The announcement comes after careful deliberation by education authorities, taking into account various factors such as religious observances, national events, and other important considerations. By providing this comprehensive schedule in advance, the Ministry aims to facilitate planning and ensure a smooth academic year for all stakeholders involved in Kuwait’s education system.

According to the education calendar, the academic year will commence on September 3, 2023, signaling the return of students to their classrooms after the summer break. Schools across the country are gearing up for the start of the academic year, with teachers preparing their lesson plans and administrators finalizing logistical arrangements.

For students and parents, the school holidays are eagerly anticipated. The calendar outlines the various breaks and vacations scheduled throughout the academic year, allowing families to plan vacations and activities accordingly.

During the school year, students will enjoy several extended breaks, including the mid-term break, which is set to take place from December 17, 2023, to January 2, 2024. This extended holiday period offers students an opportunity to relax and recharge before resuming their studies for the remainder of the academic year.

The academic calendar also includes a spring break, scheduled from March 17, 2024, to March 24, 2024. This week-long break allows students and educators to take a breath amidst the academic demands and provides time for leisure, family gatherings, and potential educational enrichment activities.

Religious observances have been taken into consideration in the scheduling process, as Kuwait is a predominantly Muslim country. The Islamic holiday of Eid Al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, is observed in Kuwait, and the school calendar accommodates this important celebration. The exact dates of the Eid Al-Fitr holidays are subject to the sighting of the moon, which follows the Islamic lunar calendar. Therefore, the specific dates will be announced closer to the time of observation.

In addition to the religious holidays, the national holidays of Kuwait are also marked in the education calendar. National Day, celebrated on February 25, and Liberation Day, commemorated on February 26, hold significant historical importance for the nation. These holidays provide an opportunity for students and citizens alike to express their patriotism and pride in their country.

The Ministry of Education has also taken into account the potential impact of unforeseen circumstances, such as weather-related disruptions. While every effort is made to adhere to the scheduled academic year, Kuwait’s unique geographical location in the Arabian Gulf makes it susceptible to weather events, such as sandstorms or extreme heatwaves. In such cases, the Ministry will make appropriate adjustments and communicate any changes to the education calendar as promptly as possible.

With the school holiday and education calendar for 2023-2024 now publicly available, schools and parents can begin planning for the year ahead. The Ministry of Education encourages all stakeholders to make the most of the scheduled breaks and holidays while ensuring a strong focus on academic achievements and personal development throughout the academic year.

As the academic year approaches, the Ministry is working tirelessly to ensure that all schools are adequately equipped with the necessary resources and facilities for a successful educational experience. Continuous efforts are being made to enhance the quality of education in Kuwait, further developing the nation’s educational system and preparing students for the challenges and opportunities of the future.

Parents are encouraged to remain engaged with their children’s education, supporting their learning journey both inside and outside the classroom. With the collaboration of educators, parents, and students, Kuwait looks forward to a productive and fulfilling academic year, fostering a generation of well-rounded individuals ready to contribute to the progress and prosperity of the country.

The Menopause Stigma: Aging or Losing Your Worth?

Childbirth, long considered a ‘private’ process, is a difficult one. Your body takes months, at times years, to recover from it. Yet, for those women who choose not to have children, it is something that is bypassed. It’s not the same with menopause: it’s something that will strike every single woman. But unlike menstruation, which has been ‘normalised’, no more sense of shame being stoked each time one goes to the pharmacy to pick up a packet of sanitary napkins, menopause — the cessation of periods — is still glossed over. Consequently, the physical, hormonal, and emotional challenges that women face are mostly not encouraged to be talking points.
