Starting School

Starting school is an exciting time for families and children as our youngest citizens take early steps on their journey through education and on to the rest of their lives.

South Australia will have the same first day of school for all children. This will be the first day of term one. Having the same first day of school means that every child is guaranteed four terms of reception before they go on to the rest of their primary schooling.

It will also mean a more stable environment for children with fewer changes to classes throughout the year.

The start date will be the first day of Term 1.

The minimum age for starting school is four years and eight months.
