School Year around the World
Wednesday, 25 April 2012 22:22
We are trying to build a complete list for the dates, or at least months of the school year in every country This is essential information for us to plan how best to help. If you can fill in any of the missing gaps, please let us know ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

Please click on "read more" to see the calendar chart.


The three columns divide countries according to whether the school year begins in January-March, April-July or August-October. For each country there should be a start month and an end month. An oblique (e.g. Chile 2/3-11/12) indicates that different schools, usually in different parts of the country, have slightly different dates.
