Back to school? No your eyes aren’t deceiving you, you read it right.
A few week ago, Katie @ Teacher’s Marketplace contacted me. Teacher’s Marketplace is a site that is the Australian’s version of TeachersPayTeachers. Katie said they were opening the site to everyone (sellers and buyers). I checked out the site and liked what I saw so I decided to join the fun.
I have this sudden interest in Australia! Australian schools have a different school vacation schedule than American schools. Check out some information I found: HERE If I am reading this correctly, the end of their school year is right before Christmas break. Their Back to School time is the end of January – beginning of February. It looks like they go to school year round with long breaks in between terms (what we call quarters). I’ve never taught at a year round school but I’d love to hear from teachers who have.
I thought I’d share a few Back to School resources in case some of my followers live in Australia.
