    People go on vacation. Schools don't. We speak of schools being on "break." My daughter started her Easter break yesterday.

    "On" is the word you want.

    People may be 'on leave', but I have never heard of a school being 'on leave',

    That's completely unconnected to the question about "in/on vacation". Please start a new thread for "In terms of". When you start that new thread, write some sentences of your own using the phrase "In terms of" and then we can comment on whether or not you are using it correctly.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
