Trying to plan school holidays, an extended long holiday or just a weekend away in the future? We hear you and want to help you plan your school year from 2021 to 2025.

If you live in South Australia, here’s a list of South Australian school terms dates for public schools as well as public holidays in South Australia. (Handy also if you’re planning holidays to South Australia from interstate as their school holidays differ sometimes from other states).

These dates don’t include pupil-free days or school development days so check with your individual school. The first day of term 1 is a student-free day in government schools in Victoria. There’s a student free day each term. Your school will decide when the remaining student-free days are, so contact them for details. Although independent and Catholic schools run along the same general dates, they do differ in terms of school holidays.

Note: All public holiday dates are accurate at the time of publishing, but may be subject to change.
