School term dates for 2016-18 announced

Tasmanian families, businesses and the wider community can better plan for the future with the release today of public school term dates through to the end of 2018.

Continuing with the four-term model, the term dates provide for an evenly structured school year, which the Liberal Government believes is in the best interest of students' learning and wellbeing.

Knowing the term dates well in advance can help families with school age children plan for holidays and other activities without impacting on their education.
