4 day school week - 3 day weekend

The proposal is to lengthen the school day, extending the day to 7 and 1/2 hours rather than 6. This would keep the face to face teaching hours the same while freeing up an entire Friday for an extra day of weekend.  With many high school students having a part time job that will often take up a day of the weekend, it is just not a proper break from our responsibilities of school and work.

If students were to have a longer day it would free up an entire day of weekend to complete recreational and homework activities.

For this to become the standard it would be incredibly beneficial to South Australian school students.
