Extra Pupil Free Day - Easter 2018

Recently the Minister for Education, Tourism, Major Events and the Commonwealth Games, Kate Jones, announced a change to Education Queensland's school holidays and professional development days for 2018. The Minister advised that the Easter school holiday period will be extended by 1 day for students and school will not start until Tuesday 17 April 2018. This change is the result of transport requirements for the Commonwealth Games and subsequent bus availability for the start of term 2, 2018. I am providing this information now, as I know families plan ahead especially Easter camping trips.
