Last day of school today here in BC, Canada.

When do the schools break up where you are? For the Southern hemisphererererers, when are the long holidays?

We're in Sydney Australia and today is the last day of school for two weeks and one day. The kids get 6 weeks off over summer/Christmas

DownUdderer Fri 30-Jun-17 03:54:45

It's winter here and feeling pretty cold for Sydney

HK. Depends on which school. Most of the international schools finish today until mid to late August. French and American schools finished earlier though and local schools not till July.

We broke up a week ago!

Already in week 3 of our summer - broke up on 9 June this year, which seems really early. Am in Virginia, USA.

Most of the international schools finish today until mid to late August. How long so they get off?

We're back first week of September.

Broke up June 15th here...also in Virginia, USA.

Last day of July, back mid September (which is useful as it's cheaper to travel in September after most places have gone back). We're in Germany but different states have widely different holiday dates and some have already broken up and go back in August (done deliberately, to avoid congestion on the motorways).

Week 3 for us too - back 2nd week of August. International school in SEAsia.

We're in Italy and broke up just over 3 weeks ago . Back mid- September!

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 30-Jun-17 06:03:43

I have to say, I was a kid in Italy and that sounds about right!

MrsMontgomerySmythe Fri 30-Jun-17 06:23:15

DS 1 broke up last on 22/6 and goes back 7/9. 11 week break.

DS 2 who boards back in the UK breaks up on 7/7 and goes back on 12/9. 9.5 week break.

It means I have kids on vacation for pretty much 12 weeks.

Scotland - today for 7 weeks!

LionsTigersBeers Fri 30-Jun-17 06:28:40

Asia here. My kids are at one of the British international schools. They break up next week. 7 weeks off shock, returning 3rd week of August.

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 30-Jun-17 06:31:19

How the hell do you stop reading loss over 11 weeks??!?!

allegretto Fri 30-Jun-17 06:40:08

What's reading loss? Can't they read in the holidays?

Rhubarbginisnotasin Fri 30-Jun-17 06:42:37

Local schools finished about a month ago and will go back in late August.

Internations schools finished about 3 weeks ago and will go back he third week of August.

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 30-Jun-17 06:43:39

Of course they can grin

But there is generally a loss over the summer. Mostly literacy but also maths and physical activity (not in our bloody case).

allegretto Fri 30-Jun-17 06:48:46

I am hoping that mine will get better at reading in English this summer as they are only able to read in Italian atm!

BertieBotts Fri 30-Jun-17 06:58:17

Ours don't break up for another 5 weeks. We're in germany and the Bundesländern stagger their holidays to avoid crushes on transport and extortionate rates, and ours is the last one. They go back 10th September.

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 30-Jun-17 07:01:38

I'm loving the German holidays. I'm moving there.

RedSandYellowSand Fri 30-Jun-17 07:16:21

Been off 2 weeks. Go back 10 Sept. 12 and a half weeks shock.
And the local schools suddenly got told to shut for Ramadan, so those holidays started 25 MAY and go back mid sept. 4 months shockshockshock

Ancienchateau Fri 30-Jun-17 08:20:32

Officially next Friday here in France but they've been on holiday since Tuesday. Nothing happens in school so no-one turns up. They go back first week Sept but we won't be here grin
