Summer is on the wane and, with it, summer vacation. School is set to restart 27 Aug.

Along with the official reminder, the Department of Education Services also announced some other key dates, those for school orientation and the dates when Year 11 and Year 12 students can receive their final exam scores.

Orientation Days are scheduled to provide new students and their parents with essential information for successful integration into the new learning environment.

Parents are required to accompany their children to orientation day, which is mandatory for students entering a government school for the very first time.
