Last day of the holidays

The last couple of weeks has seen our schools on end of term break, so coupled with the close proximity of Easter and ANZAC Day, it seems that half the country has been on holiday (estimate based on highly scientific personal observation of traffic on State Highway One and the red dashed lines on Apple Maps).

I guess with people heading back to work and school tomorrow, it doesn’t seem so bad that the weather has packed in.

  1. It seems early by US standards for the end of the school year—or is this just a one week break? Do children go to school year round? Here schools close for the summer in late June and reopen in September. There are three week long breaks—late December, mid-February, and mid-April. So maybe this was just the NZ April break?

    • Our school year runs from late January to mid December, with three x two week breaks which vary in timing a bit depending on other public holidays. This year, Easter and Anzac Day fell in the first set of holidays. The next break will probably be mid-July and the third around the end of September.
