Term dates for 2018 onwards

From 2018, term and semester breaks will be in a 1,3,2,6 model compared to the current 1,4,1,6 model.

This means a three week break in June/July and a longer two week break before Term 4, with the Christmas break the same at six weeks.

Term 1 will run for 11 weeks, Terms 2 and 3 for 10 weeks and Term 4 for nine weeks.

The decision to change the school term dates is a direct result from feedback provided through the three rounds of consultation conducted throughout 2015 and 2016.

A comprehensive consultation process was undertaken to ensure that final decision was well informed by the community and is intended to provide the best possible educational outcomes for Northern Territory students.

The new pattern reflects evidence-based research that identifies students’ school attendance and participation in learning is generally at a highest point at the start of the school year.

The new school term dates and holiday breaks have been approved for a five-year period, commencing in 2018.
