WPGA Holiday Guidelines

WPGA has generous holiday breaks built into our school year. As such, we ask that families schedule vacations and holidays within these timelines, for minimal disruption to students' academic learning. Families who wish to extend scheduled school holiday breaks are requested to contact the Head of Junior School or Head of Senior School in advance.
