School Holidays and Study Days

The planning of most school holidays is regulated by the Dutch Ministry of Education.

In our region, the boards of all primary and secondary schools decide about the planning of the Autumn and Spring holidays, and the (possibility of a) second week of the May holiday.

We receive their decision usually in Spring.

Festivities like Easter, Pentecost and Ascension Day differ every year. King’s Day (27th April) and Remembrance Day for WWII (4th and 5th May) usually take place during the May holiday. 

Study days are planned by the school.
