Reallocation of School Holiday Times?

Ask a Question

Should school term times be altered e.g shorter summer holidays and longer winter holidays (Jan/Feb) when the weather is bad?

What do you think?

It should be kept the way it is. I am sure children can manage a little bit of bad weather. ❄️ 🌨️

Yes, it has been proven that kids forget a lot of what they have learned during the 6 weeks summer hols. No more than 4 weeks in Summer. I have always felt that 13 weeks a year out of school is too much, it's a quarter of the year for goodness sake!

BlueEyesX yes, good idea. The summer hols stretch a bit too long and the Christmas break is a bit short. Lynibis that’s interesting about kids not retaining what they’ve learnt due to the long break. Confirms what I’ve suspected for a long time.

There’s been rumours for years that school holidays should change but it never happens so not worth speculating this time either.

I think it would be better with a slightly shorter summer holiday. I feel that children benefit from a regular schedule and think that it throws them off having such a long summer break. But.... the teachers really do benefit from the summer break as I think it's the only time they really get to recharge their batteries (the two weeks don't do it).

No,leave is as it is now. Kids have much more to do in summer.Let them fully enjoy it. When I grow up I had 3 months of summer holidays, never complained its too long.
