Province shares 2024-2025 school calendar

To help families and school staff plan for the year ahead, the province has released the calendar for the 2024-2025 school year, which includes 182 instructional days. 

The school calendar lays out all the important dates families and the school community need to know for the year ahead, including when classes are in session, when teachers have training days, parent-teacher interview dates, and when school holidays are happening.

"As we unveil the school calendar for the year ahead, our focus remains firmly on our students and teachers. The Department has collaborated closely with teachers, staff, parents, and administrators to develop the plan for the 2024/25 school year. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved in this process. Together, we've ensured a balanced approach to learning time for both students and professional development time for teachers because we understand that well-trained teachers contribute to student success."

- Education and Early Years Minister Natalie Jameson
