Are there any local customs, festivals or ceremonies? Try to include photos, powerpoint presentations, short videos or other resources in each of the sections.

15 years ago
The children are looking forward to their holidays they are very tired after SATs exams. We are off till September. Being a mainly Christian Country, we also have a break for two weeks in March/April for Easter and two weeks in December for Christmas. They would like to know what holidays people around the world have.

Re: Holidays- Carclaze UK

Hi there! I am Susanne from middle-west Germany. In my area the kids are already on holiday but that's different in the federal countries. Our holidays last for about 6 weeks which is not that much. Furthermore we have another 2 weeks in autumn, in winter and in spring. The holidays also refer to the Christian calendar so that's the same. We will start school again on 11th August. This is a month that is usually very hot so the kids want to have longer holidays. In Germany we have exams in the end but also throughout the year. German teachers obviously like to correct tests ....

Re: Holidays- Carclaze UK

Holidays in Romania are very loved by children. The longest holiday is the summer holiday which starts in June and ends in September.During the holidays most children enjoy spending a few days at least somewhere else, in the mountains, at the seaside , in the country with their grandparents or cousins, or abroad. Then they enjoy to share their impressions about their activities. The children also love the Christmas holiday which brings them snow, a Christmas tree and lots of presents. In spring they enjoy the Easter holiday when they go to church and celebrate Easter according to our orthodox tradition with painted eggs and lamb and Easter cakes.

Happy holi to one and all Dear friends from Cornwall and other parts of the world, Though Holi is a fest of colours and friendship some people spoil it by drinking ,gambling and fighting;some others indulge in eve-teasing and smear colours on unwilling persons;some throw dung,dirt and balloons on others. Though such people are a few ,yet these people kill the joy and happiness and the very spirit of the festival. bye Sneha Grover and Haren chaudhary

Dear all

At the term end we at DPS Refinery Panipat decided to conduct a questionnaire to see what our students could retain about

their partners . I'm uploading a questionnaire to be posed to them. Partners are welcome to add more questions to it .

Also,I request all partners to conduct a similar questionnaire in their schools about India too.As many Indian schools have submitted very informative details about India.

Kindly consider.

thanks and regards

Yogesh Singla
