The Department of Education sets the term and school holiday dates for all Queensland state schools. Independent schools and Catholic schools base their holidays on the state school dates, but these can vary from school to school — check with your independent or Catholic school for details. Term dates, staff professional development days and final dates for student attendance for 2019 and 2020 state school years are also available.
For public holidays, show holidays and special holidays in Queensland, visit the
Department of Justice and Attorney-General website.
For term dates in other Australian States and Territories, visit the Australian Government's school term dates website.
