Most NT government schools follow the same school year. Term dates for urban and remote schools differ at the beginning and end of the year.

From 2018, term breaks will follow a 1,3,2,6 model (2017 and prior: 1,4,1,6):

  • a one-week break before term 2
  • a three-week break in June/July
  • a two-week break before term 4
  • a six-week break over Christmas.
