Muscat: The Ministry of Education has issued a statement regarding the operation of Oman's schools for the new academic year.
This is based on the drive to vaccinate staff of teaching and administrative bodies, and students aged 12 years and above, in coordination with the Ministry of Health, and on the general framework for operation of schools, the Ministry of Education said. In all cases, precautionary health measures must be adhered to.

The direct education system will be followed. Schools with over 30 students to a class, however, will follow the blended education system.
The direct education system will be followed.
