So how many do you have each week?
What do you do during them?
How long do they last for?

Well im doing 13 units (ext maths), and I currently have 50 minutes worth of free periods every week and I personally do nothing during my free periods. It's just the whole essence of being at school and finally getting "free" time. Which in my brain is basically the equivalant of not doing work. I should be studying, but who can really be bothered...

You'd probably have time for the boyfriend you say would be a distraction in your other friend if you actually did work, lol.

Obviously fail at time management.

hmm i have let see... 8 per fortnight... about 70 minutes each... on 5 of those, school ends early so I just go home... and 2 are during school.. and 1 is in the morning, so I just study maths in those 3..

Maths is the most important!!! :D

EDIT: I meant to say fortnight not week, also my extensions are during school time, no coming early or staying late :D

4 x 50-something minute frees a week
most who have free periods on that line move the desks together and chat
it's great

i have one lone hr long free a fortnight...
they changed the way the timetableing was done this year to eliminate most morning and afternoon classes... it was pure luck that they decided that 9 re classes a fortnight was too much

I get 5 per fortnight. I wish I could do EX1 morning classes, so I'd have 10. Technically I have a triple free on Wednesday, but it's normally taken up by Sport, which is compulsory, so I don't actually have frees =) if it's raining I just go home.

How do you guys get so many frees? I do 13 units and no free periods whatsoever, instead of sport, I do MX1.

I used to have about 5-6 (1 hour long) free periods a week, doing 12 units. ALl my free time meant I would often go into Drama classes from younger years, or just hang around in the library. I got put on a sort of 'library probation' from the librarian because I kept distracting other classes. :) To my knowledge I'm the only person in my school to have this happen...

It's only 50 minutes per week, honestly I don't even think it's very long. Even though it may seem hypocritical in relation to my other thread, but I am more of a study at home person (and having a bf would interrupt with tht). So no, I won't have time. And may I mention i have three days where I start school at 7:30am... and by the time I do get my first and only free for the week, can you blame me for just chiling out?

lol ok guyz. i guess i win :D 20 frees a fortnight so i guess 10 frees a week (50 minz each). Doing 14 units for hsc, done 2 already, and two out of school so i guess currently in school 10 units.

Most of the time theyre spent on chatting and making crude jokes with me friends, and the rare chance of study.

I have 6 free periods every fortnight, so 3 p/week. I generally use this time to study, but if theres nothing that needs to be done urgently then I take the time to relax. I'm doing 13 units, all pretty demanding subjects, so any free time is great. :)
