School calendars

When can we collaborate?

While schools in the various Regions of Korea have slightly different dates for holidays this calendar can be used for general planning.  In Victoria of course the government schools all have the same school holidays.  The actual dates for both Countries are detailed below.  It looks like the best times for collaboration are:

  • March
  • May
  • June – the first week of July
  • August until around September 20th
  • October 10th – December 20th (but in Victorian schools some Senior Year levels may finish earlier or have final exams earlier.  Victorian Teachers may also be busy writing reports in December)
