    Umm no - I have a full time job :)

    But, our school holidays generally run from the start of december until the end of january for primary and high school kids.

    Universities have from the start of november until the end of february on holidays. ALthough exams are often scheduled in November.

    I believe that is the equivalent of your "summer" holidays. The "new" school year begins at the end of our summer holidays (ie you move from one grade to the next).

    Hope that helps - I am at work at the moment!

    I'm also in Oz, but I'm at Uni. Holidays started for me on November 12, 2003, and I don't go back until February 16, 2004, or something.
    Man is life ever sweet
  5. I have a full time job as an installer/ electronics tech for a music/PA gear store.

    Its summer and lovely.
