That's the first time I looked at the vacation times for this year. Usually, I've already done that! But it is a good thing to know for planning purposes.

Hi Shannon,

It's helpful to know these things in advance!! It's weird how it says school starts on Wed. and my students don't have school on Wednesdays!! Are there schools in France where kids still attend on Weds? I don't know of any... but it's possible...

My students still go on Wednesdays. They go for a half a day, but the Bac Pro and BTS sometimes have full days. But my school has no Saturday classes.

Leesa said...

Hmm... interesting... I don't think my students have
Sat. school anymore... but the elementary school kids don't have school on Weds... either... I'm not sure about high school... but maybe they go half day, too...

I know the primary schools in Picardie don't have school Weds or Sats. I'm not sure about the colleges and lycees, but I know in my town, my lycee is the only one closed on Saturdays. The other public one and the Catholic one have Saturday morning classes.

Hey Shannon,

That's interesting.. I thought that France did away with all Sat. classes....

shannon said...

I think it was just for the primary schools. But maybe, it's for all schools this year??? I'll let you know what the other lycees are doing once I'm back in Chauny.

Maybe David knows something about this.. He'll have to jump in and comment, if that's the case!
Keep me posted, anynow.... Take care, Leesa
