Following news from the Senedd that Wales’ academic year could be altered in favour of a shorter summer break, this week voters offered their views on the redistribution of time off. They thought about the different factors at play when it comes to school holidays, and the impact of these on them, their learning, and their caregivers.
"We should spread out the summer holidays and not have 6 weeks, maybe 5, so we can have an extra week off in the winter. For example, 3 weeks off for Christmas."
"We believe the holidays should stay the same but holiday companies should not take advantage of families by hiking prices up during holidays."
"Why change things when they work ok now? We like the holidays and look forward to them. Our opinions may be different in a few years when our priorities have changed."
