In its Gazette 31590, Government Notice 1203, of November 10, 2008, the Department of Education of South Africa has announced the dates of the special one-off bridge holidays for schools, for 2010.
These one-off school holidays are usually adjoined to a Tuesday or Thursday public holiday, and are not to be confused with school terms and vacations. Thought these are not full-fledged public holidays, many employees do take the day off to benefit from a 4-day weekend with the entire family.
The calendar, which has been submitted for comments, also contains a 5-week break from June 9, 2010, to coincide with the 2010 FIFA World Cup being held in South Africa (19-Apr-2008).
