Listed below are the school terms and holidays for the year 2019, as announced by the Ministry of Education and published
in the Government gazette. Certain holidays are national holidays and are observed by the entire country while others apply
only to certain states. Similarly, weekends and school holidays also tend to be different especially in those of the conservatively Muslim states of Kelantan,
Terengganu, Kedah and Perlis as compared
with the other states of Malaysia.
Another factor is that while some holidays have fixed dates, there are others that vary each year and
are not fixed. These dates vary as to their religious or cultural background and by which of the Muslim, Indian or Chinese calendars is being used.
Have a look at the Chinese zodiac signs (Year of the Pig).

The Ministry Of Education (MOE) dates are split into two groups of states – School Group A and School Group B. Group A states are those that have Friday and Saturday as their weekend (Johor, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu). Group B states are those that have Saturday and Sunday as their weekend (all other states and territories).
While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the dates we publish, dates of holidays (such as school holidays) do change from time to time.
We therefore encourage you to cross-check your travel dates with other public holidays and school holidays sources before making flight/hotel/travel plans.

Note that holidays falling on a weekend (Sunday or Friday depending on the state - see below for details) will generally be
celebrated on the following day. Also, should two holidays coincide, an extra day may be given immediately after to make up. This rule mainly
applies to National and Religious holidays. IF the following day is also a holiday, then a further day will be given. The birthdays of the
Sultans are in many cases fixed on a weekend so as not to disrupt work.
