Additional notes:
For primary and general secondary education, a school year must be not less than 180 days. A school year runs 9 months from September to June.
A school year is divided into two parts: at the end of a semester, there is a two-week holiday, called mid-school year holiday. The summer holidays are between June and September. Decisions on ending/starting semester dates are made by the Ministry.
