Term Dates

Our college calendar sets out the dates for internal and external activities at the college. The calendar is completed at the end of the year before so parents are aware of the next year’s events. Minor amendments are made as necessary throughout the year.

A Department of Education term dates calendar for 2017 can not be provided as each public school develops its own calendar.

Students start the school year on Wednesday 1 February and end the school year on Thursday 14 December. Easter occurs during the Term 1 and 2 break.

There are six school development days where students do not attend:

  • Two of these days are before the school year starts for students and one day is after the school year ends for students.
  • Each school schedules another three days throughout the year in consultation with its school council/board and school community.
  • Independent Public Schools have the flexibility to trade-off school development days (except Monday 30 January and Tuesday 31 January).
