Some schools ended the school year even earlier: on June 26. The Education Ministry, however, cannot say how many schools did so, as a school headmaster could end the year earlier only after making a deal with the school’s administrator, the SITA newswire reported.

In the 2014-15 school year, altogether 454,052 pupils attended primary schools and 228,230 pupils went to secondary schools, according to Education Ministry spokesperson Beáta Dupaľová Ksenzsighová.

Most pupils will get rewarded for their good results. As many as 78 percent of parents say they are ready to give some treat to their children, adding they do so every year though more than half of the current parents did not get rewarded for their school results when they were children. This stems from the survey carried out by Profi Credit Slovakia.

Moreover, 83 percent of parents know what marks their children will have on their school reports. Only 6 percent of respondents say they are not interested in learning about the results sooner, while 7 percent say that they are very surprised by the results. The survey also suggests that 45 percent of parents reward their children at the end of the school year, while 33 percent of them say they motivate their children also during the whole year, SITA reported.

The summer holidays at schools officially start on July 1. The pupils will be back behind school desks on September 2.
