Ask RiotACT: Why does the ACT start school a week late?

Ask RiotACT

Hi Rioters.

Noticed this week that NSW and VIC are both back at school already, but the ACT isn’t.

Someone at work told me it was the same when his (now grown kids) were at school as well – great time for less crowded holidays to popular spots he reckoned.

Can anyone explain why the ACT starts a week later than other states, but still finishes at the same time?
