School holidays in perth

Recommended Posts

hey everyone  we are making the move to oz from south wales in 2021/2022 and i was just wondering, what are the summer holiday months when the kids are out of school ( half terms ) and summer holidays, as some know we have a 6 weeks holiday from end of july to and kids go back first week of september to start a new year. is this the same in australia ?

As you can see the long summer holidays are from before Christmas to the beginning of Feb.  This is for 2019 but 2021/22 will be similar(ish) date wise.

Summer in the southern hemisphere is December.  A lot of schools don't have their inset days mid term - they're usually the first day of term (for most schools) and the kids go back the day after.


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

Term one in Perth is from the end of January,/beginning of February, it is also the start of the new school year.

I have attached the 2020 school year dates for you. Also, schools have their development days at different points of the year. Sometimes at the beginning of term, sometimes in the middle, it depends on the decision taken by the school leadership team and school board.
