Easter Break Leave Dates

   Department of Education Media Release

25 February 2013

                               Deputy Secretary Department of Education

Deputy Secretary Department of Education, Liz Banks said that the Easter Break for students would be from Thursday 28 March 2013 through to Tuesday 2 April 2013.

“The additional day for students on Thursday 28 March caters for a statewide Professional Learning Day.”

“The first term holidays commence on Monday 22nd April, which reflects the move to a four term school year,” she said.

Ms Banks said that research indicated that shorter terms and more frequent term breaks would benefit Tasmanian learners by reducing learning loss that occurs during extended term breaks.

“There will be no change to the number of days that students will be on holidays throughout the year.”
