Parents pick holiday dates

Have your say

EAST Lothian’s school holidays for the next academic year are being decided with the help of parents.

A consultation has been launched to decide between two possible options for 2013/14 after it emerged that local authorities across Lothian would not be able to hold simultaneous holidays this year. The options are to mirror Midlothian Council’s holiday dates or Edinburgh City Council’s schedule.

Following the consultation exercise submitted views are taken into account and a report is prepared for the committee for education.
