As one school holidays ends, all kids can think about is when the next one will begin. Strangely, though they happen four times a year every year, we are still blindsided by their swift approach!

But while students lament the long wait until their next break, we have a whole term ahead to plan! Whether you're looking to schedule a slew of programs and activities to keep the kids busy during the holidays or take off on a family vacation as soon as that last bell rings, here are all the dates you need to get organised this year.

Get these NSW school holiday and term dates in the diary and add some inspo in case you do decide to fly the coup.

Please note: these dates are for NSW public schools. Private and independent schools generally base their terms and holidays around these dates, but they may differ slightly.
