How often do you find yourself needing to look up school holiday dates and public holidays for where you live?
I know that the 'Australian Public Holidays' is a standard Calendar that is available in the Calendar app on my Mac and iDevices, but I would rather just see the public holidays and school term dates for my own location.
Just today, I decided to investigate if I could get the Victorian school terms (for at least this year and next) into my Calendar, so that I could easily look up future term start and end dates.
It turned out that was very easy to do. I just went to the www.vic.gov.au website, and visited their iCal Downloads page.
That page has calendar downloads for school term dates, and also for Victorian Public Holidays, for up to 2025.
For anyone else who is interested, just click on the below links to download an 'ical' file that you can then open, to import the dates into your Calendar. You simply choose which 'calendar' to import to. (I created a new 'School Terms and Public Holidays' calendar to hold these dates. If you are not sure how to create such a calendar, check out this Handy Hint for iTandCoffee Club members.)
If you are not in Victoria, here are a couple of links for other states.
If you live somewhere else, why not Google something like what I Googled, which was "calendar of school holidays download location-name".
Easy viewing of term dates in iPhone/iPad Calendar
Having added the 'term' dates to my calendar, I can then quickly look up a list of term dates for future.
I just tap the 'magnifying glass' at the top of the calendar screen to perform a search, and enter term.
My calendar app then shows me the term dates for the next 12 months. (On my Mac, the list of dates goes right through to 2025.)
