A public holiday is a day where most businesses and institutions are not open. Thus, it is unusual that you would need to attend school on that day.

To say that something is unusual or unexpected you can make an exclamation like "How strange!" or "How bizarre!".
public holiday(祝日)には、ほとんどの会社や学校が開いていません。ですので、祝日に学校に行く必要があるのは普通ではありません。

何かが普通ではなかったり、予期しなかったことを言うには、 "How strange!" (なんて変わっているの!)や "How bizarre!"(なんて変なの!)という感嘆詞にすることができます。

  • It was really odd that we had school on a holiday.

    play icon

This sentence focuses on the fact that it was strange and unexpected in your opinion that you had classes on the holiday. This sentence is based upon American English but any native English speaker should understand what you want to say.

I hope this helps :)
この例では、休日に学校があるのが不思議で予想外だったことに焦点を当てています。
この表現はアメリカ英語に基づいていますが、ネイティブならどこの人でも理解してくれるはずです。

お役に立てれば幸いです :)

  • I was flabbergasted that we had school on a holiday!

"flabbergasted" means surprised or taken off guard, and is an expression that some native speakers, especially younger generations like to use. For example: I was completely flabbergasted when he asked me on a date.
"I was flabbergasted that we had school on a holiday!"
"flabbergasted" は「驚いた/不意打ちを食らう」という意味です。これは特に若い世代の人がよく使う表現です。
例えば:
I was completely flabbergasted when he asked me on a date.(彼にデートに誘われてビックリ仰天した)

"I was flabbergasted that we had school on a holiday!"(祝日に学校があってビックリした)

  • I didn't think we would have school on a holiday

    play icon

  • I assumed school would not be on as it's a holiday

    play icon

If you think or expect something to happen then you day you 'assumed' or 'thought'
a public holiday is a day when alot of shops/business do not open as the employees have a day off as well so you might think that the school would not be on as well
何かが起こると「思っていた」こと、そうなると「予期していた」ことは、'assumed'(思った)や 'thought'(同)で表せます。

'public holiday'(祝日)は、多くのお店/会社が休みになる日です(従業員も休みを取りますから)。ですから、学校も休みだと思ってしまうかもしれません。

  • Why do we have school on a holiday?

    play icon

  • It is a holiday so school should be closed.

    play icon

This is a way of asking a question to figure out why something is happening. So in this scenario the children still have to go to school even though it is a holiday and they would like to know why this is.
これは、物事の起こる理由を尋ねる言い方です。この場合は「休日なのに学校がある」、その理由を尋ねています。
