Schools have summer breaks, public holidays, and mid-term breaks for several important reasons.

Firstly, the summer break allows students and teachers to have a substantial period of rest and rejuvenation after an intense academic year. It provides an opportunity for students to explore other activities, engage in outdoor pursuits, and spend quality time with family and friends. This break also allows educators to recharge, develop professionally, and prepare for the upcoming academic year.

Public holidays are observed to commemorate significant events or individuals in a country’s history or culture. These holidays serve as a break from the routine of school and provide an opportunity for students and teachers to reflect on and appreciate their national heritage.

Mid-term breaks are scheduled to provide students with a brief respite during the semester. These breaks offer a chance for students to catch up on assignments, review their progress, and relax, ensuring they maintain a healthy work-life balance. Teachers can also utilize this time to assess student performance, plan future lessons, and address any concerns.

Overall, these breaks are crucial for maintaining the well-being of students and teachers, promoting a balanced academic calendar, and fostering a sense of cultural appreciation.
