Student-free Days

Each year schools receive student-free days (when student instruction does not occur) for professional development, school planning and administration, curriculum development, and student assessment and reporting.

The first day of Term 1 each year will be a student-free day to allow for appropriate planning to take place for the arrival of students.

Schools have the flexibility to schedule the remaining three student-free days each year. Student-free days will be set well in advance each year so that parents can make suitable arrangements.
