Canada/Australia Explained: Schools years and seasons
Canadian and Australian school years are very different, so I've put together a guide for understanding how it all works. (Sorry for the weirdness of the table. Blogger does not appreciate me trying to put a table in.)
* Our school year is broken into four terms and two semesters (two terms per semester), and each term is about ten weeks. We'll have ten weeks of school, then two weeks off.
