The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Cul­ture, Science and Sports is­sued or­der A/747 to change the ex­tended break pe­ri­ods of gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion schools of the sec­ond, third and fourth se­mes­ter. This has been done in ac­cor­dance with Par­lia­ment’s de­cree re­gard­ing “Com­bat­ting air pol­lu­tion” passed on Jan­uary 5, which stated that the is­sue re­gard­ing the break pe­riod of preschool, school and univer­sity stu­dents ware to be de­cided at the end of the year.

The win­ter break pe­riod has been changed from De­cem­ber 15 to Fe­bru­ary 15. This change has to do with the align­ment of the New Year’s and Lu­nar New Year’s cel­e­bra­tions. Ad­di­tion­ally, this is the time when air pol­lu­tion is the most harm­ful. The change in sched­ule varies de­pend­ing on the age range of stu­dents and the sum­mer breaks of stu­dents have also been slightly al­tered. With the in­crease in the length of the win­ter break, sum­mer breaks will be start­ing mid-June for high school­ers and on June 8 for third to fifth graders, re­ported the Min­istry o Ed­u­ca­tion, Cul­ture, Science and Sports.
