As the summer school holidays approach, the 2024-2025 vacation calendar reveals that some French people will have more chances than others.

In addition to these holiday dates, there will be a few bridges or extended weekends with public holidays. The 2024/2025 school year will be a good year for fans of long weekends. November 1st will, in fact, fall on a Friday just like August 15th. November 11th will also allow a long weekend since&# 39;it will be a Monday, the same as July 14. Less luck for Christmas and New Year which will be in the middle of the week, on Wednesday. May 1st and May 8th fall on Thursdays. It will be necessary to add those which have fixed days such as the traditional Ascension Thursday (May 29), accompanied by of a bridge, and on the Mondays of Pentecost (June 9) and Easter (April 21).

This last date will also please a lot of people. one of three zones. Easter Monday will fall the day after the end of spring break in zone B. She will thus be able to benefit from an additional day of rest and students will only return to school on Tuesday April 22. Conversely, zone A sees Easter Monday as well as May 1st falling during the spring break. No bonus for young people from Bordeaux, Lyon or other Clermont towns! 

Zone B will also have only 5 weeks of classes between the Christmas and winter holidays compared to 6 or 7 for the other two. If there will be six weeks between the winter and spring holidays for everyone, the period will however be much longer for zone B between the spring holidays. spring and summer with no less than 10 consecutive weeks to finish the school year.
