The Ministry allows for 6 maximum PA days per school year.
A total of 194 instructional days per school year is a Ministry requirement.
A maximum of 10 days is allotted for secondary school exams.
The best possible scenario for secondary schools would be for two 97-day semesters but there may be other considerations.
