    i thought iceland had been repossesed already?
    That doesn't really matter. So long as the exchange rate isn't too bad.
    I'd be mainly going for the scenery and then secondly for the history though....so financial problems are irrelevant.

    It won't happen. I have booked a holiday in that time anyway so there isn't anyone stopping me going.

    It's my birthday in that week! I don't think I've ever been in school in my birthday; it always falls in Feb half term. Don't want this year to be the first time :p:

    Though I really doubt it'll happen.

    You're not going to like university then. There's no such thing as half-term.
    But nor are you in Uni for 380 half days, no way.

    It's a bit stupid really; it's hardly our fault we've had these snow days, and they've come at a pretty bad time (for me) anyway - I certainly wouldn't willingly swap a week that splits apart nicely two sections of school for another few days/ week at the end of two weeks of holiday anyway, especially as you can't use them particularly well with them being unplanned and interspersed between school days.

    Exactly you can't go out anywhere, thats why college is closed, so can't class it as holiday.

    This doesn't mean I haven't been doing work though - my german teacher keeps on emailing us with ridiculously complicated bits of work to make up for snow days.

    Wow, this is news for me. Interesting idea, I wouldn't mind it myself, but it would be too short notice and inconvienient to be planning that now, especially with people going on holiday and stuff. Perhaps this should be more of a wake up call for the government to learn how to deal with snow better. We can't really help what the weather does, but if other countries like Poland and that that have snow all the time can cope, then so should we.

    People seem to be really harsh on teachers and school this year. If not enough teachers can get in, the school cannot open properly. That is the law. Headteachers shouldn't be criticised for this.
    Also, some schools are on steep hills that are very dangerous to get up. The school can grit the school site, but if the council doesn't grit the hills, then the school will have to close.
