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, the (possibility of a) second week of the May holiday. We receive their decision usually in Spring. 

Festivities like Easter, Pentecost and Ascension Day are based on the Christian differ every year. The festivities of King’s Day (27th April) and remembrance of the second World War (4th and 5th May) usually take place in the May holiday. Study days are planned by the school itself.
