What are the good plans for building bridges in the 2022-2023 school year?

Unlike this year 2022, the May holidays fall on a Monday, not a Sunday! Good news to shut down family bridges, even though May 1 and 8, 2023, falls during spring break for zones B and C.
To enjoy a long weekend in 2023, you’ll have to wait until Thursday, May 18 (maybe tell them there won’t be many people in the office on Friday, May 19, 2023) or Tuesday, August 15, (if you’re not on vacation yet) .
For Ascension Day (which falls on Thursday May 18, 2023) the Ministry of Education has already announced that the students will not have classes on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 May. Whit Monday falls on May 29, 2023, ten days later.
