The school holidays period could easily be likened to boat ownership, where they say the two best days are ‘the day you buy it’ and ‘the day you sell it’. Except, with school holidays, you compound both days of comparative joy into the day the kids go back to school, after realising the first day kicks off weeks of endless attention, activities, funding and transport, oh and love, of course. With the new year rapidly approaching, ATYD thought it was imperative to provide a list of essential dates for the School Holidays 2019.
The following table outlines School Holidays 2019 for all public schools in all Australian states. Learn them, memorise them, put them in your calendar. Most importantly start planning for them!
