Term Dates


School terms and holidays are set by the Department of Education and Training (DET).


Students do not attend school during the term holidays, on public holidays and on the four student-free days provided to Victorian government schools.

Student-free days are provided for professional development, school planning and administration, curriculum development, and student assessment and reporting purposes. The first day of Term 1 is a student-free day in all government schools and the remaining three are determined by each individual school.

The student-free days at Essex Heights Primary School in 2017 are Monday 30th January, Tuesday 31st January, Monday 29th May and Friday 18th August.
