(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Ministry of #Education (MoE) and Muscat Municipality have introduced a rule to not allow new schools to function from villas, according to a senior government official.


All schools with higher classes currently being run from villas will have to shift within 2019 to bigger premises as students need more space for activities.


Also, no new school having classes for grades one to 12 will now be able to operate from villas. The rule, however, does not apply to kindergartens.


Speaking to Muscat Daily, Fatma Abdul Abbas Noorani, Director General of Private Schools, said, ''No new school will now get permission to operate from villas. Those already functioning will not be disturbed because students are also involved. This decision is so far applicable in Muscat. We always inspect school buildings prior to giving approval, but now the municipality and cividefence personnel are involved more rigorously.''


Fatma added, ''Kindergartens, which are for children aged three to five years, can be run from villas. The children feel secure if the school is near their house. It is easier for parents, too to send the children to these schools for a couple of hours and inculcate the habit of socialising.''


MoE had been planning to introduce this rule for quite some time as it believes that a bigger campus is needed to children above the kindergarten level.


''Children in kindergarten need to be monitored,'' Fatma said. ''They are small and hence, less spacious places are fine for them. It is also easy for the teachers to keep an eye on them. But, children older than them need more space as they need to get involved in various activities. Also, we want children to recognise schools as fun places. Our effort is in the interest of student
