2009 Public Holidays and School Terms & Holidays

Last year, when I put up a post on 2008 public holidays, I also included the Public Holiday schedule for 2009.

Thought I would put one up separately for 2009 public holidays. The upcoming school holiday on Mar 13 prompted me to also include the school terms and school holidays schedule for those of you who have school-going children or nieces and/or nephews.
