  1. I was hoping to get a printable 2024 S A schools calendar the size of a foolscap page. The one I printed is so small as to be illegible. Not helpful.

    1. Hi Gil, the pdf on the download button is an A4 size. Please make sure when you print to set the print size to A4 and that is a perfect fir for your foolscap book.

      Kindest regards

  2. Hi, the Pdf does not contain the calendar for the coastal clusters, can this be fixed, or can I trust the dates that are provided in this website. planning a family holiday so these dates are important
