Features of the academic year in schools in Cyprus
Cypriot schoolchildren have three periods of rest – summer holidays, Christmas and Easter. Also schools in Cyprus are closed on national holidays. Some of them fall on school holidays, so we will not indicate their dates.
Each city, community or parish in Cyprus has a patron saint. On his day, schools, like most other institutions, are closed. But the decision whether to make this day a day off is made by the administration of the educational institution.
There are Maronite schools in Cyprus. They can introduce an additional day off on February 9, on the day of St. Maron according to the Catholic rite. The decision is made by the principals of each school separately.
