    One of only about 13 weeks of the year that I can actually get proper work done without kids/staff around to interupt!

    BTW, I noticed you work for a Uni. I remember from my uni days that half term was called 'reading week' and I seem to recall most semester lasting no more than 8 weeks total. What is it, 1 month off over christmas, 1 month for easter and 2 over the summer, plus reading weeks. I think I was away from uni more than there!

    No such thing as reading weeks (officially) here.

    Induction week was 22/09, with teaching starting the week after. 12 weeks of teaching, 3 weeks off at Christmas, then another 12 weeks of teaching, then 3 weeks off for Easter.

    Then 3 weeks of exams, a couple of weeks of hanging around waiting for exams to be marked, then resits and that's the beginning of July when the students officially finish. In reality many will have disappeared after the first lot of exams.
