Subject: School calendars around the world

I am trying to compile a list of school calendars around the world
which would be useful for anyone contemplating working or doing
research in another country, establishing class-to-class cooperative
learning programs, etc. Once completed, the info will be made
available in the Humanist archives and elsewhere. To make the data
easy to understand, I've adopted a graphical format, giving credit to
the person who supplies the data, for example,

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
| | | | | | | | | | | |
Austria(Univ) -11111---222*22*222222--------------->11111111--
Austria (P/S) -1111-111111*1111*1111--------->11111111111111--
(Karl Heinz Schmid)
Belgium -222222*2222**3333333333------->1111111-1111111-
(Michael Goethals)
Brazil ------>111111111111111111-->111111111111-111G---
(Dina Tanners) [Start is after Carnival]

1 first term, 2 second term, etc. P/S Primary/Secondary Level
* Movable holiday week (Easter,etc) x exam period,
G graduation, - break > Start of year (next char position)

Each month has four character positions representing 4 weeks/month
beginning with the leftmost position under that month's number I have
data on the following countries. If one that YOU are familiar with is
not listed, PLEASE send me your info, either in the graphical format
or just in words. (Or if you know of an existing data source, for this
kind of info, I'd be overjoyed!)

Countries already listed: Australia, Austria, Belg, Braz, Can, China,
Costa Rica, Czech, Den, Ecuador, Fin, Fr, Ger, Hon, HK, Hung, Ice,
Iran, Isr, It, Jpn, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, Mex, Namibia, NZ,
