The 2025 school calendar will span from 15 January to 10 December, comprising a total of 199 school days.

Schools in inland provinces typically commence on a different date than those in coastal provinces, usually with a one-week gap between them. However, for 2025, schools across the country will commence the first term on the same date (15 January 2025) and conclude it 52 school days later (28 March 2025).

Term Dates

  • Term 1: 15 January - 28 March
  • Term 2: 8 April – 27 June
  • Term 3: 22 July – 3 October
  • Term 4: 13 Oct – 10 December

The 2025 school year will therefore come to an end on 10 December for both inland and coastal schools.
