and Summer Holidays - Saturday, 21 December 2019 to Tuesday, 28 January 2020
Have fun planning!
@mleissawhinnen 's dates look pretty much spot on - for public schools. Private schools are different. The biggest difference is private schools ususally close up shop after the 1st week in December.
What hurts is this: Summer Holidays - Saturday, 21 December 2019
That's _litterally_ just before Christmas! So compare that to private schools and you can see that public-kids get 2 weeks LESS of holidays :( So I'm thinking of taking my little-ones out of public school, earlier this year to give em some well deserved rest. Also, December (at public schools) are literally 'child care' mode. Nothing serious happens at all. Sure, it's easier for some parents because they both work (like me + wifey) so then they don't need to worry about finding someone to look after the little ones. But I remember how much fun I had during Summer Holidays and sometimes, it's nice to have the children play outside for longer, etc.
