School Terms 2020 with School Holidays (SA)

South Africa has two different school calendars systems. The School Calendar for the Government or Public schools breaks the year into four terms, and that for the Private schools breaks the year into three or four terms. Most students attend government schools in South Africa, so traffic at holiday destinations is busiest when they are on school holidays. All schools are on holidays during Christmas and New Year which is the longest holiday break for students(5-6 weeks vacation), being summer.
