Teacher-only days 2024

Following consultation with the sector advisory groups, the Ministry has confirmed the following date ranges for the 2024 teacher-only days:

  • Term 2, 27 May – Fri 7 June 2024 (includes the King’s Birthday long weekend on 3 June)
  • Term 4, 21 Oct – Fri 15 November 2024 (includes Labour Day on 28 October and Canterbury Show Day on 15 November when no NCEA exams are scheduled)

Providing a date range gives schools flexibility to hold their teacher-only day at time that works best for them, however the Ministry is also strongly encouraging schools in neighbouring areas to hold their TOD on the same date. This increases the opportunity for collaboration, maximises the use of in-person supports, and minimises disruption for parents and whānau.
