| Studying abroad is an amazing experience,especially when you come to Australia as an overseas (外国的)|
high school student. You can have a lot of fun here, especially on holidays.
There are many festivals in Australia.The most important one is obviously Christmas.Each year, the
summer holidays at every high school last about two months from the beginning of December to February,
which covers the Christmas time.Since it is a long holiday, most overseas students love to fly back to their
home countries to spend the time with their families and friends but a few students still stay in Australia during
the holiday to get part-time jobs. It is quite easy to find a part-time job at Christmas. Student often take part in
another major social activity. They go to the beach to have fun in the sunshine.The summer in Australia is
from December to February, so going to the beach in December is very popular among Australians.
Easter in March is another important holiday in the year. It actually combines "good Friday" and "Easter
Monday". Almost every shop closes on Good Friday.And people usually go to see Easter Show.
The Chinese New Year is not a public holiday in Australia, so every Chinese student still has to go to
schoolto study and do his or her normal duties.
