    Go on, then. I'll ask...

    Is anyone already on their summer holiday? How many days to go?

    ...not that I don't love my job and everything...

    On holiday a little over a week now but this is the earliest I have ever finished. Must admit it I'm at a bit of a loss at what to do with the entire summer.

    5 'teaching' days left, but since they're doing finals, they're only really coming in for exams and going home. Next Thursday is the last day, but the students literally come in to pick up report cards and then go home.
    The principal has been away since May 31st, so it feels like my holiday started then!

    Next Tuesday here, though Monday is a school trip to the beach and all that seems to be on the timetable for Tuesday is a massed water fight.

    Because we can...

    Our school finished last week. The other international school in town finished 3 weeks ago and they go back same time as us.

    Brutally, I still only get six weeks holiday, same as England. Finish end of next week, and back mid august for prep week, then starting the next week.
