School term and holiday dates in NT

The majority of government schools follow the same school year.

Term dates for urban and remote schools differ at the beginning and end of the school year. Check if your child attends an urban or remote school.

If your child attends a non-government school, you must check the term dates with the school.

Gunbalanya School has flexible term dates to recognise activities in the community.
