Your child’s school holidays may have additional pupil-free days, you should always check start and conclusion dates with your school. If your children attend a private school, their holidays may be different.

Your Orders and Parenting Plan may define a different method for how the holiday should be arranged. If they don’t, our suggestions of an appropriate half-way change-over are listed for your convenience. Applications for Contravention of Orders are commonly filed against a parent who has not properly complied with school holiday provisions.
