A year 9 student of a Dubai private school in Silicon Oasis died last week following a medical condition.
The school informed its parent community through a letter.
"We have been informed by the family that (the student) had a congenital medical condition and died suddenly over the weekend from pulmonary complications," wrote the principal.
The school also offered counselling for students, with the principal adding, "Teachers will respond to children’s questions, as they may arise, in a sensitive manner and on an individual basis.
"If you think your child may need specific counselling or support, please do not hesitate to contact our Secondary Parent Relations Executive."
