Western Australia school term dates

Term dates in Western Australia may vary slightly depending on the sector your child attends. Schools are closed on public holidays that fall outside the term holidays — Australia Day, Labour Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, ANZAC Day and Queen’s Birthday.

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. (See a full list of Western Australia public holidays.)

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.
