The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) determines the dates for the summer, winter and May holidays each year. All primary and secondary schools are bound to these dates. In addition, the ministry provides advisory dates for the autumn and spring holidays where there is room for additional free days.
In the Netherlands, the government spreads the main holidays to reduce, among other things, traveling problems. The Netherlands is divided into three regions: North, Middle and South. Amersfoort is in the Middle region.
As with all other schools in the group, the holiday calendar of AIS is drawn up in accordance with KPOA regulations. This calendar also includes the public holidays. In addition, AIS has study days for staff; on these days, there is no school for the students.
