The school will also take the following days as “Asuetos”:

Monday   24.08.2015

3.

Friday      18.09.2015

4.

Friday      30.10.2015


Whilst students will enjoy all of these “asuetos”, staff will undertake INSET sessions on these days.  The British Schools is in the process of introducing a new and very different programme of studies (PYP) in the Junior Section and, to this end, is conducting essential Professional Development Workshops in February.  Whilst further INSET days or half-days are not currently contemplated, it may be necessary to have such sessions later in the year.  In this event, Parents will be informed with as much notice as possible.

Whilst this is the “bare bones” for this year – with much, much more to add to the calendar – hopefully, this will allow the families of the schools to plan the school year to ensure that students do not miss a single day of classes!
