First Day

All students in grades 1 to 6 will begin school on Wednesday 29th January 2020.


Our foundation students will begin fulltime classes on Tuesday February 4th. They will be given a time to undertake their beginning school assessment between Wednesday 29th January and Monday 3rd February.

Curriculum days

Each year schools receive four student-free days. These days are used for professional development, school planning and administration, curriculum development, and student assessment and reporting.The first day of Term 1 each year is a student-free day in all government schools. This is to allow for appropriate planning to take place by teachers prior the arrival of students for the new school year. School councils have the flexibility to schedule the remaining three student-free days each year to meet local needs of the school.
