    break up

    Hi!
    Is it possible to say

    When does school break up?

    If it is ok, can it be referred to the break during the morning or is it only referred to the periods in which students have their holidays from school?
    Thank you.

    It is used here to refer to the end of a school term.

    Thanks a lot Anglika for your kind help.

    What do you mean by the ned of the term? I mean, do students have some days off between the terms or is the break just the end and the beginning of another term?
    Thanks Rip
