    Personally I would ask to speak to who ever is in charge of Information Technology (ICT) within the school and talk to them.

    Ask to speak to the Network Manager and explain to him/her your interested in volunteering your time to help out with any work going on during the summer hols in order to gain real world IT experience.

    If only that were true! I always find that I'm doing more during the holidays, especially the main summer break, than I do during term time. See this thread...Summer projects...

    lol, not much to do over the summer hols? You're kidding right? The hols are when we get to do our projects and not just "firefight" the jobs... Can't speak for all school's, but at ours this is a short list of what we're doing:

    1. Installation of 3 new PC suite (32 PC's in each)
    2. Replacement of another suite, part of the rolling replacement cycle
    3. Virtualisation of 16 servers
    4. Domain/Forest upgrade to 2k8
    5. Upgrade of our exchange server
    6. Fibre runs
    7. Installation of software on both all PC's as well as the VLE
    8. Preparation of the new AD/e-mail accounts for the new intake, etc...

    There are more, but at this time of the morning, I'm not in work mode
