In response to the tragic loss of a seven-year-old boy in Sharjah, educational leaders in the UAE are mobilizing to address the profound impact of the incident on students, especially those who may lack the coping mechanisms necessary to navigate such traumatic events. The child, a student at Ibn Sina School, was discovered lifeless in a locked car after being left unattended for an extended period.

Furthermore, experts underscored the potential impact of grief on students' academic performance and concentration. Dmello highlighted the importance of accommodating grieving students by offering flexible deadlines, extensions on assignments, and additional academic support. She emphasized the need for ongoing monitoring of students' academic progress and emotional well-being to ensure comprehensive support.

Girish Hemnani, an Energy Healer and Life Coach based in Dubai, emphasized the importance of acknowledging the uniqueness of each student's grief journey. He stressed the significance of providing a non-judgmental space for students to express their emotions and grieve in their own way. Additionally, Hemnani highlighted the importance of facilitating commemorative rituals or tributes to honor the life of the departed classmate and provide comfort to grieving students.

In essence, UAE educational institutions are taking proactive measures to provide holistic support to students grappling with the loss of a classmate. By prioritizing emotional well-being and implementing comprehensive support systems, schools aim to navigate students through the grieving process with care and compassion.
