Configuration of the School Day in Public Schools


Policy

2 Background

The Director General determines the days in each year on which schools are to be open for educational instruction of students and publishes this in the Government Gazette at least three years prior to the beginning of that year. All dates are also published on the Department of Education's (the Department's) Term Dates website.

The minimum hours of instruction for students do not equate to the minimum hours of face-to-face contact time for teachers. The minimum hours of instruction for students, exclusive of recess or lunch times, are set by the School Education Regulations 2000.

Due to enrolments across different phases of schooling, many schools may be required to conform to two or more sets of these required hours of instruction.
