When to go for holidays (for PSLE children) ?

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Hi

If I'm not mistaken, the PSLE result will release if late Nov. 1 0r 2 weeks later after the school holiday start.

Pls correct me if I'm wrong.

Based on history:
2008 20 Nov 08 Thursday
2007 22 Nov 07 Thursday
2006 23 Nov 06 Thursday
2005 24 Nov 05 Thursday
2004 24 Nov 04 Wednesday
2003 22 Nov 03 Saturday
2002 28 Nov 02 Thursday
2001 29 Nov 01 Thursday
2000 29 Nov 00 Wednesday
1999 27 Nov 99 Saturday
1998 30 Nov 98 Monday
1997 29 Nov 97 Thursday
1996 30 Nov 96 Thursday
1995 30 Nov 95 Thursday

and the tentative date posted by some schools,the most likely date would be 26 Nov 2009 Thursday.
27 Nov 2009 (Friday) is Hari Raya Haji, so it's a long weekend to consider the choice of Sec Sch for non-DSA students and celebrate the success of your child's outstanding PSLE results.
:wink:

I'm thinking of scooting off for a holiday immediately after this year's PSLE, say from 15 or 16 Oct onwards. I hope to take advantage of the Deepavali off-in-lieu on Monday, 19 Oct and the PSLE marking days from 20 - 23 Oct.

Does anyone know what the kids would be doing that week immediately after the PSLE cos I don't want to miss out on anything important that the teachers may have for the kids. :?

Anyone knows if schools really bother if P6 kids skip a few days of school after the PSLE exams? Thinking of taking ours to CHina for a week (including weekend) just after the exams. Thanks.

Based on my own PSLE experience eons ago :wink: , I don't recall teachers having anymore lessons with us. They were just babysitting us and letting us play board games, card games, etc as long as we weren't rowdy and misbehaving. If you're concerned about the attendance record, maybe you can check with the form teacher if attendance after PSLE is included and will thus be reflected in the report book.

I know some parents take the chance to go on hols right after PSLE exams because the school will not "teach" - probably will have more "fun" kind of activities. Just check with form teacher what he/she will do in the week after exam just to be doubly sure.
