Academic Year Calendar
The academic year calendar aims to cater for families who originate from both hemispheres by having long breaks at the end of the calendar year as well as the middle of the year. The school year is made up of four ten week terms. Students have a five week holiday over December/January and June/July and one week holiday in April and September. DIS has five pupil-free days each year, set aside for the first two days of Term 1 and 3 the first day of Term 2 and 4. DIS has two additional pupil free days for teacher report writing. DIS takes all National holidays.
