Parent Info - Term Dates

Staff Development Days

Apart from the first Staff Day of the year before pupils commence, the school may apply for additional Staff Development Days during the year.  The focus of these days is determined by the School Goals for that year. Parents will be notified as early as possible once the dates for these days have been approved, as these will be pupil free days. One Staff Development Day each year will have a Religious Education focus. 

The staff days that have been allocated for 2017 are:

Term One: Week 1, 27th January and Week 9, 20 March (Armidale Cup)

Term Two:  Week 1, 24th April and Week 6, 2nd June

Term Three:  Week 1, 17th July 

Term Four:  Week 11, 18th & 19th December

Otherwise St Marys Term Dates run in accordance with NSW Board of Studies, as shown below
