I started summer vacation June 16th and school starts again early September!! ^^

Here's my schools system (well I go to a Private school but the holidays and stuff are similar to the Public systems) And I'm only saying the long breaks (not one or two day breaks, full breaks)

School starts in early September.
2 Weeks off for winter break mid December to early January.
2 Weeks off for spring break during March (not quite sure when).
And then...about 3 Months off for summer vacation!!

That's just all the big vacations, but we have a lotta one or two days offa school for Jewish holidays, etc.

It's pretty similar here in Canada, but the schedule you mentioned above is just for any school before university I think. At my university, you only get 1 week off in March, that's called the "Reading week". Laughing You can't really do much during that week because the mid-terms are sometimes right after the 1 week holiday. Mad

btw, you get 4 months of holiday for summer, if you're a university student. Boogie

I have summer vacation since the last week of May~~so boring.

I think most university starts at the end of August, so that's when I'll be going back to school. But until then, I'll be sitting at home playing with my new powerbook. Boogie
