School Holidays 2019 Essential Dates

Australia School Holidays 2019

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.
