When is it free in the 2017/2018 school year?


The school year begins on 4 September, because 1 September falls on Friday (and according to the Act, if 1 September falls on Friday or on the weekend, the beginning of the year falls on the next business day).

There are many days off in the coming year, just like last year. A lot of holidays fall on the weekend (e.g. November 11 and January 6 falls on Saturday) ... One parents enjoy holidays off school, because they point out that children should have a lot of slack, because they are still working hard. Others, however, believe that days off from school are an eternal problem - what to do with your child. Not always on-call times in the after-school club are practiced, sometimes they function in such a way that, to put it mildly, they do not encourage using this option. Regardless of the views, we already know the work calendar for 2017/2018. That's him.

September 4 - the beginning of the school year

November 1 (Wednesday) - a holiday
