School Holidays in Cyprus
When the children are on holiday: the school term dates you need to know in Cyprus...
The Cyprus school year follows the three term system with vacation breaks in summer, the Christmas/New Year period and the Greek Orthodox Easter period falling in spring. Most English-curriculum schools have a mid-term break of one week in October and February.
- The school year includes registration days
- Some primary schools named after a Saint are closed on the corresponding Saint's day
- The Minister of Education and Culture may choose to change the dates for educational benefit reasons
The vacation dates vary from district to district and private international schools have different dates for their school holidays.
Note: Please always check with the relevant school to confirm the holiday dates.
