School Holidays 2012


​After an overwhelming response to its recent survey on proposed holidays, the Queensland Government is introducing changes to make our work-life balance even better.

The Queen’s birthday holiday will be moved from June to the first Monday in October with a one-off Queen’s Diamond Jubilee holiday to be held on the June long weekend in 2012.  This means in 2012 the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee holiday is on Monday 11 June and the Queen’s birthday holiday on October 1.

Student free days will be shifted to create a two-week break at Easter — making it easier to plan a break, keeping the length of school terms more consistent and easing disruption for families.
