2015 School Term and Holiday Dates

2015 School Term & Holiday DatesDo you ever forget when term ends, or have no idea when the next public holiday is? It’s pretty easy to forget. Sometimes I don’t even remember what day it is.

With family that may live in a different state or territory to where you are, it’s hard to book holidays and trips away because they need to coincide with school term and holiday dates.

We’ve compiled the list of term, school holiday, and public holiday dates for each state and territory for 2015. Print them out or keep the link handy so you remember!
