Listed below are the school terms and holidays for the year 2021, as announced by the Ministry of Education and published
in the Government gazette. The 2021 school year for all Primary and Secondary schools will start on Monday, Jan 4, and end on Friday, Nov 19, The Ministry of Education (MOE) announced on Monday (Aug 17). Students starting their first year in junior college (JC) or Millennia Institute (MI) will begin school on Friday, Jan 29. The rest of the JC and MI students, however, start earlier on Monday, Jan 11. 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
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 Ox).
School Terms and Holidays 2021
These dates are preliminary and are subject to change
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.
