Winter holidays of the 2017-2018 school year
The most favorite time for schoolchildren is a vacation, no matter how hardworking their children are in learning, they love to relax and have fun. Every quarter or trimester is eagerly counting the days to the cherished date. But these dates are determined by serious people, based on the number of "work days" and holidays. The Ministry of Education establishes rest periods for students and communicates to each educational institution. The beginning and end of the vacation time depends on the days of the week and holidays. In our country, holidays, falling on holidays, give the opportunity to rest another day.
If you do not count the summer, the winter holidays are the most welcome for children. There are reasons for this:
- Winter is a fabulous season.
- You can relax for two weeks.
- Winter fun, skiing, ice skating, from a hill on a sled.
- New Year's holidays promise a bunch of gifts from "Santa Claus".
- Waiting for miracles on Christmas night.
- The duration of the holidays suggests interesting trips.
For most children in the Moscow region, the usual autumn, winter and spring breaks are shifted. This is due to changes in the educational process of some schools. Instead of the usual quarters trimesters were introduced. Some researchers believe that such a system will have a beneficial effect on the health of children and increase their efficiency.
The essence of this system is the alternation of equal intervals of study time. Children study for 5 weeks and rest for a week. The exception is winter holidays, which last almost two weeks in all schools. The table shows the distribution of working time in schools.
|School time||Schools with trimester education||School time||Ordinary schools|
||I quarter||September 1 to November 4|
||II quarter||From November 8 to December 24|
||III quarter||From January 9 to March 25|
|IV quarter||From March 26 to May 31|
In ordinary schools, the period of autumn and spring holidays is set to 9 days. But this year, students will rest for 12 days. One day is added at the expense of the festive Day of National Unity (November 4), two days (October 28, 29) at the expense of days off.In some schools, the transfer of vacation time is possible at the discretion of the administration. Spring break will last 9 days, from March 21 to March 29. These dates are recommended by the Ministry of Education, the school administration can also postpone vacation time for good reasons, for example, the backlog from the educational program. It may be:
- quarantine activities at school;
- due to severe frosts;
- because of the spring flood.
The winter holidays in all schools coincide on dates: from December 25 to January 9, which is not the fixed 12, but the whole 18 days. December 23 and 24 are weekends, the Christmas holiday also gives children an extra day for the holidays. The main thing is to spend time free from school with health benefits, for creative development. You can not sit at the computer for days, you can do something useful:
- go to the rink;
- play snowballs;
- visit a theater or museum;
- go to a concert of your favorite artist;
- visit the gym;
- just chat with friends.
