School Term Information Australia

Term Dates

The school year in Australia starts in either late January or early February and runs until December in the same year. There are four terms in the Australian school year, each with a short holiday period in between terms of between 2 - 3 weeks and a 6 week holidaybetween school years over summer.

The approximate term dates are:
• Term one: Late Jan – April
• Term two: May to July
• Term three: August to Oct
• Term four: Oct to Dec

The school term and holiday dates quoted above are for State or Government schools which only. Private and independent school term dates will be similar but often have slightly longer school holiday periods particularly for senior school students.

Grades prep to year 10 will usuallu finish the school year in December, while grades 11 and 12 students will often finsh the school year in November on completion of exams.

School students do attend school on public holidays which have an independent schedule to school holiday periods.

School Information

In Australia children start school at the age of around 4.5 – 5.5 years old, see the School Age Calculator

Most Australian schools start at 9am and finish at 3:30, with before and after school care available for students who need it, which is usually at the parents expense. Schools are not catered in Australia and students are required to bring their lunch or buy it at school.

In most cases students attending government schools must attend a nominated school in their local area as determined by school boundaries, however not every school operates with a catchment boundary.

Holidays in Childcare

School holiday period do not apply to kindergarten and child care centres. Most of these centres will offer full time care all weeks of the year, except at Christmas where it is common for centres to close for 1-2 weeks
