Fife School holidays are always fun, even if they’re just for a day. They give you time to catch up on the latest movies, try out the hottest gaming titles and see friends from other schools.
However, none of these holiday events will be viable without planning. Also, no planning would work if you don’t know when you’ll be having holidays.
If you’re schooling or enrolling a kid in a Fife school and you’re curious about when you’ll be having school holidays, you’re at the right place.
This post will outline all the Fife school holidays that the council has announced yet and when they’re taking place.
Fife Council School Holidays 2023/24
For every academic session, the Fife council publishes a schedule including all school holidays in the county. All schools in Fife adhere to it and take the holidays as required.
If you want to know when you’ll be having holidays and breaks, you can use the Fife council website or this website.
Here is a list of all Fife school holidays from the council’s website, along with their dates and the purpose.
Fife Autumn Half Term Resumption Day
The August resumption day is usually one of the first day of the term after holiday on a regular academic session.
The August resumption day marks the beginning of the autumn academic session, and it involves returning of teachers and students to schooling activities.
Councils set the August resumption day date for schools in their vicinity, and for Fife, it’s on Wednesday, August 17th, 2022.
Fife October Break (Autumn Holidays)
The October break marks the end of the academic session in October. It’s a week-long holiday that commences from Monday, October 10th, to Friday, 2022 to October 21st, 2022. However, kids won’t return to their schools until Monday, October 31st, 2022.
It’s one of the lengthier holidays for Scottish students outside those set aside to celebrate a religious event like Christmas or Easter.
Fife Christmas/New Year Holiday
The Christmas and New Year’s Holidays start towards the end of the calendar year before Christmas and end after New Year.
This holiday lasts for two weeks, making it one of the lengthiest holidays for the session.
Schools across Fife will close by 2:30 pm on Thursday, December 22nd, 2022, to commence the holidays. The schools will resume on Wednesday, January 4th, 2023.
Fife February Break (Spring Midterm Holiday)
After the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays, Fife schools won’t have another break until Wednesday, February 15th, 2023.
Of course, this isn’t Valentine’s break, it is to mark the middle of the Spring term, and like other midterm breaks, it lasts for two days.
Schools won’t open on Wednesday, February 15th, 2023, to Friday, February 17th, 2023, to mark the middle of the Spring term.
Fife Easter/Spring Break
The lengthiest break for the 2023/24 session is a joint one; for the Spring Break and to commemorate Easter.
This break lasts for almost three weeks, starting with a 2:30 pm closure on Friday, April 7th, 2023. It continues until Friday, April 21st, 2023, when all schools reopen and resume academic activities.
This holiday is the best opportunity for vacations, picnics, visitations, and similar activities that you’ve always wanted to do.
Fife May Day
There is also a holiday for all Lanarkshire schools on Monday, May 1st, 2023, to commemorate the May Day celebration of the previous day.
May Day marks International Workers Day for all workers around the world. While the day happens to be a Sunday, schools and related institutions can take the closest working day off to commemorate the day.
This holiday is the first of the three holidays in May, making it the month with the most holidays in the year.
The Public holiday And Queen’s Jubilee Holiday
The Queen’s Jubilee holiday marks the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s reign. It usually takes place on June’s third day every year, but a public holiday on a preceding day will make it look longer than it is.
These holidays will make for a four-day weekend, starting from Thursday.
Fife Summer Break
On Monday, July 3rd, 2023, all schools in Fife will close by 1 pm for the summer break.
The council has decided on the resumption date after this break, and the decided date is Wednesday, August 16th, 2023.
