|Winter vacation starts soon!|
Winter Vacation starts next week for most Elementary Schools
elementary schools: about 30 days of winter break, ending on Jan. 26
middle & high schools: long break, starting on Dec. 31, of at least 32 days
On December 19, Friday, Eunseok Elementary School led the string of schools to start its winter vacation with its ceremony marking the end of the semester. The majority of elementary schools in Seoul will start the winter break on December 26, Friday, and reopen its doors around January 26, Monday, after the 30-some days of vacation.
Most secondary schools will hold the ceremony signaling the start of winter break around December 31, Wednesday, followed by a long vacation of over 32 days. In the case of high schools, there could be a slight difference in the dates and duration depending on the curriculums of individual schools.
The reason the winter break is longer for secondary schools than it is for elementary schools is that there are less classes from late-January to February.
