School Term Dates

As BJE teaches in NSW government schools, the term dates given below are for government schools. If you are looking for the term dates of a school which is not a NSW government school, please contact the school directly for information. Most schools list their term dates on their school website.

Please note that Jewish holydays begin the evening before the date listed below. Days marked with an asterisk (*) are days on which ‘work’ (writing, using electric or electronic devices, travelling in vehicles, etc) is not permitted according to halachah (Jewish law).
