Change to May Day Public Holiday

Please note there has been a change made to this year’s May Day Public Holiday.

The May Day public holiday in 2020 will change from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May to coincide with the VE Day 75th anniversary commemorations.  This decision follows both national and Scottish Government to change the date of the Bank holiday to Friday 8 May 2020.

Please remember you can check the Highland Council holiday dates on their website https://www.highland.gov.uk/info/878/schools/32/school_term_dates
