Take this into account, too...

The effective school vacation time can be slightly longer than the official term dates would indicate:
The first or last day of a school term might be used as a student free day (also called a professional learning day).
Special student free days might be needed by a new school at the beginning of the year.
Special student free days might be needed at the end of one year and at the beginning of the following year when a merger has resulted in a new school.
Building activity can cause a slight delay in the commencement of a term for an individual school.

Term dates for 2015 were announced in the Minister's term dates media release, 11 Dec 2012, with the start of term 1 amended slightly in his professional learning days and term dates media release, 23 Jul 2013. Term dates for 2016-2018 were announced in the ministerial media release of 19 July 2014.
These dates apply to government schools. Although the Catholic and independent schools currently base their terms on the same dates you are advised to see our Catholic and Independent schools sections.

For earlier term dates, see Past term dates.
