In order to maximise learning time, a couple of small amendments have been made for the upcoming school year.
Firstly, in order to shorten the summer break (and reduce the summer learning loss), the academic year will start a week earlier than normal in August 2018 and finish a week later than normal in June 2019.
In between, we have added two extra days to the October break and extended the Spring break to a full two weeks, as is standard in many other international schools. This will also enable us to include additional teacher training days throughout the school year.
Additionally, whereas most international schools have 180 students days in a year, we have increased the overall number of student days from 181 to 184 days.
Finally, please note that the 2018 Christmas show will be held on the evening of Thursday 13th December. By delaying the show until the final week of term, we believe this will create an extra week of academic learning.
