Starting the school year
Support your child with adapting to high school.
Want to know when Term 1 starts?
You can find out about school term and vacation dates at the NSW Department of Education.
The Education Standards Authority provides resources to help parents know more about the syllabus for years 7 to 8.
When it comes time for your child to start school, it can help to:
- plan ahead
- set routines
- get involved.
Ways to do this include:
- encouraging a study routine at home and setting up a space for homework
- talking to your child about road safety when travelling to and from school
- actively becoming part of your child’s school community.
