|The school year is divided into two terms in all the three Regions:
||August to December
||January to May
Exact dates for the beginning to the end of term vary from year to year and from region to region, and parents are informed accordingly. The school office may be contacted for further information.
BSS schools have a five-day working week, Monday to Friday, with a two-day weekend break. School timings vary slightly from one school to another, depending on local requirements. They also change twice in a year (summer and winter) to meet seasonal conditions.
In addition to weekends and gazetted holidays, the schools have two major breaks during the year: one in summer and one in winter. The duration of these depends on the regional climatic conditions.
School uniforms throughout the Beaconhouse School System are very similar, although there are variations in some parts of the country because of different climatic conditions.
Les Anges Montessori Academy also has a different school uniform, details of which can be obtained from the school. We provide a list of suppliers who know the local requirements, but if a parent wishes to make use of their own tailor, this is acceptable provided that the colours and design are the same as those available with the listed suppliers.
In 2007, BSS introduced a new A Level uniform created by an internationally renowned designer.
