Term Dates

The New Zealand school year is divided into four terms for state and state-integrated schools . 


We have some flexibility around our start and finish dates and the dates for Terms 2 and 3 are fixed, and set by the Ministry of Education (MOE).  To view the MOE guidelines for each school year, click here. 

Each year our Board of Trustees sets the dates for the following school year based on information from the MOE who set the amount of days each school must be open for instruction.  In 2020 we are required to be open for 380 half days. 

 

Once the Board of Trustees have approved the staff only days for 2020, they will be updated here.
