Victoria school term dates

Schools are closed on public holidays that fall outside the term holidays, such as Australia Day, Labour Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, ANZAC Day, Queen’s Birthday and Melbourne Cup Day.

Because metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas may differ in the public holidays that they recognise, the public holidays observed vary depending on the locality of the school. (Find a full list of Victorian public holiday dates.)

While non-government schools generally adhere to the listed term dates, they can develop term dates relevant to their own circumstances. Each non-government school's term dates will therefore tend to differ in some ways from government schools and from each other.

Non-government schools may differ in the public holidays they observe and many do not grant student-free days, enabling students to have an extra week of holidays in the term breaks instead. Check with your child's school for details.
