This sort of takes in homeschooling as well as regular schools. Our two oldest dc were in school and dh is involved with the school system, so we tend to follow it as well.....but I've been wondering what the school year looks like in Australia?
In the school boards we've been involved with here in Canada ...we always have July and August off for summer holidays, two weeks at Christmas time and a week in the spring (Ontario it was in March, here in NL they combine it with Easter).
Some school boards have what they call a modified school year. I'm not real familiar with it but it goes something like this ---- one month off in the summer, then they go to school for a month or maybe two, followed by a week off and continue on with that pattern. People who are in these areas seem to like this route better....they say dc don't forget as much as they do when they have the two months off. I don't think I'd like this as our warm weather months are short as it is. We're not winter sports enthusiasts as many people are so we'd rather be off and out and about in the nice weather and then in school when it's not as nice out (but that's just us as some people do like the modified year).
julieann: A long while back you posted a recipe for Easy Sauce by Reg and Jack Absalom, I just wanted to say thank you so much, and to mention that it is pretty good for making tomato relish. I am an Aussie living in the USA. No easy access to Ezy Sauce.JulieAnn
