  4. We break for Easter on 15th April and return on 3rd May. We always have two weeks here but will obviously have the May Bank Holiday tagged on.

    Will be intrested to see what is said tomorrow regarding the wedding bank holiday!!!
     
  5. Paah! the 29th falls in my Easter holiday anyway.
    I live and work in different authorities, my holidays are completely different from my children's.[​IMG]
     
  6. It's in my Easter hols too. [​IMG]

    Some independent schools do not have the bank holiday on the Monday. They just have a normal teaching day. Wonder how they will treat the Friday?

    Just to say I have absolutely no interest in the wedding at all.

    We have our Easter Hols, then we have a NPD on the Tues, then 2 days of teaching, then Wedding Bank Hol, followed by May Bank Hol and a 4-day week, then it's a short run till May Half-Term! Well pleased!!

    We go back on the 26th, so will benefit from the extra day. Schools who go back after May bank holiday must have the shortest half-term on record! Even if you don't break for Whit until the first week of June, you must have less than 5 weeks for that half term!

    Back in... was it 2000?.. when we had another late Easter, here in West Sussex at least we had a 4-week half term between Easter and half term.
     
  13. The half terms are being changed next year so that we don't get an extra day. The Jubilee will fall in school holidays.

    I couldn't be more delighted at the date they've picked. If I can afford it I'd like to go to Holland for Queen's Day on the 30th, which is a national holiday over there. It will mean I can fly out the day before without taking a day's annual leave and fly back on the May bank holiday Monday.

    In my local authority, we were given four dates to choose from across the academic year so that we do benefit from the extra day. Yes the actual day falls in the hols, but we're being given a day elsewhere.
    Think most people in my school have voted for one particular day. The children are not meant to break up until Thurs 22nd Dec next year and then when we go back in January, we have a teacher day on a friday. One of the options we were given was to move that teacher day to Thurs 22nd Dec, so the kids finish on Weds. Then we get 2 full weeks off without having to go back on the Friday.

    Saying that though, the wedding fall in my Easter hols. Can't see them giving us an extra day elsewhere for that!

    We had a really early Easter in 2008 I think, so in East Sussex we had a 4 day weekend for Easter and then a 2 week holiday a couple of weeks after that, so a really short half term after.
    My baby is due on April 30th...wonder if they will be a day early and born while the royal wedding is taking place! At least the roads will be quiet for the drive to hospital!!

    How long does it take for a wedding dress to be designed, made, fitted etc? I would have thought four months for all sorts of reasons is a pretty tight schedule?

    She may be considered a priority customer, though !
    I can't understand people who spend months/years planning a wedding......and they're usually the ones who split up three months later.
