    Default When do you finish for christmas

    I'm on countdown for the 22nd now only 5 days of school runs left.

    I'm glad we are finishing so late though as we then don't go back till the 8th January.

    Is anyone working over the Christmas period?

    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    I’m the same as you; finish next Friday at 6 then off til the 8th. I used to try and work my time off around the various parents , but now just take the school holidays every year as I got sick of being messed around!

    Yeah I don't even try too because you can't please everyone and I'm not opening for 1 child. Mine will be an early finish so come 430 I will be cleaning the hall carpet

    Ours have finished yesterday (schoolies) but me not till 22nd! Pre-school still open though till 20th, luckily have my assistant (daughter) so don't have to take schoolies on pre-school runs! Then back for 3rd when school opens but have pre-school ones till 8th. All messed up this year.
