Welcome to the NSW School Holiday website
We provide you with all of the important information you need to help plan your family holidays or work holidays.
NSW School holiday dates usually occur at similar times each year and term length always sits between 9-11 weeks. It is worth noting that Year 12 has different finishing dates to the other grades in term 4.
In New South Wales the schools are divided into Western and Eastern Division. Western Division schools generally return to school a week later in Term 1 than their Eastern Division counterparts.

The info presented on this website doesn't take into account Student Free Days which are set by each school individually.
Private and Catholic Schools tend to use these dates as a guide but their dates generally differ slightly from state run public schools.
