Yep 18th.

But I really feel like it should have been last Friday. This last bit just seems so pointless.

yep 18th here in inner west sydney. i think at this stage it’s just glorified child care, i don’t think they’re doing any learning! i don’t mind though, i’m happy for him to be out of my hair for a bit, and not on screens...which is what he will be doing for a large chuck of the holidays....

DS12nextweekend is at the end of yr6. He'll be there until the end of the 18th, although it seems to be all about parties and assemblies and other social gatherings atm.

We've got flights booked for the morning of the 19th.

Yep Wed 18th for us.

Year 11/12 kid has exams all this week so is studying hard.

Year 6 kid isn't doing too much.

Year 8 kid has been watching movies for about 2 weeks already!! She also says even though the last day is the 18th, the last day *really* is the 17th, and therefore she doesn't have to go on the 18th because NO ONE is going. Sigh.

Our school gets round stopping people from not attending by making the last day when you only get your report card if you attend that day. and yep. The reports are emailed digitally too.

That's what our school did in june/July (we are new to this school so don't know from last year) so I'm guessing they will give them out on the 18th.
We don't get digital copies so it's basically come on the last day of school or don't get your report card unless you have a good enough excuse and a parent can get it for them they don't mail them either I think it's a you have to attend every day type scenario.

Thank you all

Got to talk to the office ladies today and they confirmed it was the 18th.

Now I can tell my son without him getting anxious that I got it wrong lol.

FML! I’ve had the Friday in our diary all along!
The school didn’t have a date anywhere on FB, newsletter etc. Rang then today and it’s Wednesday.

37 weeks pregnant next week and have all the pre baby appointments booked for the Thursday - wax, haircut etc. Lucky DS :|

ACT has their last day on the 19th this year and I really wanted school to go till the 23rd or whatever the monday is! Or at least the Friday the 20th!

The 19th seems so early this year.
