This is the Calendar for the Bulgarian School “Azbuka” for the academic year 2024-2025. We observe all Bulgarian national holidays as well as the public holidays in Ireland. The school year lasts for 29 school weeks including several weeks off due to mid-term breaks and the Christmas holiday season.

The calendar for the Bulgarian School “Azbuka” has been set in accordance to the official school programs from the Ministry of Education in Bulgaria and is set in a way to provide the children from ages 4 to the final 6th year classes with all the knowledge they would need in Bulgarian, Geography and History.
