    crikey.....but ive heard that. we take ours out for at least a week each year to ski + a bunch of long weekends. last year we had 3 months off for travel. 2 years before that 5 weeks off for travel. mine are still primary level, but it does depend on the principal in the end, and the area.

    We started copping it 2 yrs ago at a primary school, independent college for the last couple and same rules apply. 3 weeks out of school (for nerdy boy & ski bunny) would not score too many brownie points. :headbang:

    We just fill in a form for holidays and it gets approved . We take them every year for a weeks skiing . Teachers / principal ask how trip went etc . Can't see the stress of it until they are in high school with pending exams

    Man the snow is so addictive ... Wife and I had a discussion a few nights back saying how expensive snow trips are.

    But considering how much fun and the memories we will have far outweighs the monetary element.

    There aren't many sports that can be enjoyed together for quite so long.

    Hope there's many seasons to come!

    The daughter has recently learnt the art "rolling her eyes" at me when she doesn't like something I say to her ...
