Singapore School Holidays 2017

School term dates and holidays in Singapore are determined by the Ministry of Education. The MOE generally releases the official school term and holiday dates for the next year around September of the previous year. So, for example, the school holidays 2017 list was released by the MOE in September 2016.

The holiday and term dates released by the MOE are followed by primary and secondary schools and junior colleges across the country, as well as the Millennia Institute.

School holidays in Singapore are a prime time for families to travel to nearby countries in the region. So, make sure to book your holiday plans including hotels and flights well in advance,so that you don’t miss out or pay a premium.

The school holidays 2017 dates below are from the MOE website, so are considered the official dates.
