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 2022 to 2025.

Here is a list of Western Australian school terms dates for public schools as well as public holidays in Western Australia. (Handy also if you’re planning holidays to WA 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. Although independent and Catholic schools run along the same general dates, they do differ in terms of school holidays.

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