School Terms and Professional Learning Days


Did you know?

  • The Tasmanian Government school year is divided into four terms. 

Professional learning days

  • During the school year, schools have professional learning days and on these days your child will not attend school.
  • Professional learning days enable teachers to participate in important learning that improves their teaching.

Moderation days

  • There is also a moderation day for student assessments.  This ensures all students across Tasmania are being assessed against the same benchmarks, and that student assessments are comparable across schools.
