School Holidays and Study Days
The planning of nearly all school holidays is regulated by the Dutch Ministry of Education. The government decides about the planning of the Christmas holiday, the Summer holiday and one week of the May holiday. They give advice about the planning of the Autumn holiday and the Spring Holiday.
In our local 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 and the festivities days. Normally we receive their decision in spring.
Festivities like Easter, Pentecost and Ascension Day are based on the Christian calendar and the dates 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.
