Joker days

The so-called joker days are holiday entitlements of two full or four half days that pupils can claim during a school year. Depending on the school, the school management needs to be informed of the specific dates, or it’s enough to let the teacher know. Please note the blocked periods for joker days – your school will be able to tell you.
