Schools following the Indian curriculum follow the April to March calendar of their home country and incorporate local holidays within this.
Schools following the Northern hemisphere academic calendar (UK, European and North American schools) run from August/September to June/July. Holidays are typically taken in October, December, and March-April.
Here’s a look at the international school and public holidays that you can expect in 2020. Some of the dates may vary according to your school’s own calendar, so make sure you check with the school before booking any flights!
Note: When a national holiday is not mentioned, means it’s already included in a school break period of time (ex. Christmas day, Songkran Festival)
