University Of Western Cape Terms 2019

by Israel Boafo Bansah

University Of Western Cape Terms 2019, South Africa has two different school calendars. That for the government schools which breaks the year into four terms, and that for the private schools which breaks the year into three or four terms. The vast majority attend government schools, so traffic at holiday destinations is busiest when they are on holiday. All schools are on holiday during Xmas and New Year which is the longest holiday break, being summer. For visitors wishing to visit SA in summer, and who want to miss the holiday rush, then November to school closing or January, from the school opening date onward is perfect.
