Proposed 2014 School Calendar


The Minister of Basic Education recently published the proposed 2014 School Calendar inviting written comment. Copies of this notice was placed in the printed media  as well as the Government Gazette in the form of a schedule indicating the public holidays, numbers of school days and weeks for both the inland and coastal provinces.

I have a degree of difficulty interpreting this schedule but it is my general impression that if the proposal goes ahead there may be a greater harmonisation in the school terms of the coastal and inland provinces. The problem area may be around April 2014. There is a general election due in 2014 and the announcement about the election date/s remains the prerogative of the President of the RSA.

Interested parties have a month to comment on the proposal.
