    Next week, Monday 27 February 2017 until Friday 3 March 2017 we have the finals at our government secondary school. Tuesday and Thursday M1 - M3 and Monday, Wednesday and Friday M4 - M6.

    I think we are required to submit the pink/ blue books and the 'Bookmark' records by Thursday 9 March or Friday 10 March 2017.

    As our school is not really generous with giving days off, it's expected that our summer holiday will start on Saturday 1 April 2017 and will last until Sunday 7 May 2017.

    Academic year 2017 will possibly start on Monday 15 May 2017.

    What about you? Care to share?

Going to be an interesting year. The holiday will be well spent driving around Thailand with the family. Going to go far North. I also want to find some other work, online, summer camps whatever to put some icing on the cake.

    Mulling is precisely the word to describe it.

    We've got summer school so I'll be off starting April 12th until May 15th I guess. Nobody ever announces these things officially though.

    We don't really get proper holidays at my school. The government teachers do, but the ones employed by the school, Thai teachers aswell, get the 10th to the 16th of April. That includes a weekend and two national holidays. So really just three days and the same kind of story in October. Last year, we had two weeks where we gave a sort of Summer camp to the M1/1 and then an English workshop for the Thai teachers.
    After that the school was dead but we had to come and sign our names until we started the new semester first week of May.
    Can anybody beat this?

    All work done. Tomorrow the students' grades will be posted on the school's website. Monday students with grade 0 have to come to school to upgrade their scores. As of then signing in every day until 31 March 2017. Holiday most probably from Saturday 1 April until Sunday 14 May 2017. However, we might be called in earlier.

    I'm currently creating my science and math tests for grade two and three EP, the English tests are done and dusted and will be done this Monday where I took a day off.

    Science tests on Tuesday, then math tests on Wednesday, which is also the kids' last day at school.

    The grading should be done in the same week, then I might have to fingerprint in and out until the end of the month. ( It sux, because I'm 25 km away !)

    Dates of the interview(s) at other schools not yet confirmed.

    Some good offers for English camps in the break are already made. No matter at which school I'll land, it can't be worse than the one I'm at now.

    Happy holidays and drive carefully, they don't......:cheers
