2011 Public Holidays
The official holiday calendar for 2011 is out. With lots of short holidays and designated weekend work days to make up for “days off”, we advise you to print this out, learn it by heart, stick it on your fridge or keep it in your wallet. You don’t want to fall out of favours with your boss just because you didn’t realize last Sunday was a working day!
