Private schools in Dubai will transition to the UAE's new work week from January 1, with the weekend moving to Saturday-Sunday.

"The private education sector in Dubai will be open in line with the recent UAE Government decision on the working week. We'll be working closely with our community to ensure a smooth transition," the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) said in a statement.

The UAE's new workweek for government entities runs from Monday to Friday noon, with Saturday and Sunday being the new weekend.
