Holidays and other special days are an integral part of the primary curriculum.

In the Holidays Online project, the resources of the school's STELLAR Schools connection will be used to supplement the existing school resources. Access to the Internet is important to this project as it gives the students an opportunity to explore material and ideas not available through the resources in the school.
Evaluation in the Primary school is best done through ongoing observation and discussion with the students. Evaluation of the learning in Holidays Online will be conducted in a similar manner.
