TasLearn and Department of Education, Tasmania School terms information for 2014 and 2015 was first published in the Minister's media release of 11 Dec 2012, but note the subsequent 23 July 2013 amendment.

(The document
Four-term model for 2013-15 [xls file] should now be ignored.)

If planning for travel to be undertaken during school holidays make sure you continue to check the DoE's term dates page just in case there are any changes to the dates. This page is the official source of Tasmanian term dates information.



 
Term dates for 2016, 2017, 2018 and beyond   The term dates for 2016 and beyond have not yet been set (as at 14 Feb 2014). However, you can see the Easter dates on our Term dates and school holidays page.

In setting future term dates issues may arise over the Regatta Day holiday (for southern Tasmania) and the effect on inter-state travel and tourism of the break between Terms 3 and 4.
