Students at the schools up and down the island will be enjoying a 13-day break from their studies from May 23 – June 6 to watch the games and enjoy some time off.
Jennifer LeVasseur, who has been teaching at Baan Maireab for a year said that she too would be enjoying the unexpected holidays, but was slightly worried about returning.
“Our school is going to be home to all of the boxers, so there might be holes in my classroom walls.”
