All the surrounding school districts to us already have the 2 week October holiday just not our district (Typically!). However there is currently a consultation process going on to change this in 2015. I would be thrilled by this, although my eldest will almost have finished school by then, but my youngest would only be in P3. This would be amazing for us and would allow us another October trip. Here's hoping!
We're lucky that the boys go to a Jewish faith school so they get 9 - 10 days off during September or October
Otherwise would it be wrong to convert to Judisim! lol
