Malaysia School Holidays and Public Holidays 2019



The Malaysia Public Holidays and School Holidays 2019 is out on the Ministry of Education website. Every year, parents wait for these dates eagerly because they plan for their vacations ahead of time by buying cheap deals in travel fairs.

Some have even gone ahead to buy air tickets and made plans ahead of time by guessing the dates of the holidays. Are you one of them? Did you guess the dates correctly? We noticed a slight change in this year's calendar. We'll talk about the changes at the end of this post.

In the meantime, let's have a look at the calendar or school terms and holidays for 2019.

Note that this calendar is not complete as there is another part ie the Cuti Perayaan or Festive Holiday which usually comes out a little later.

Differences between the school term dates of 2018 and 2019

The school terms is made up of two semesters with a 2 week break in the middle of the year. Each semester has a mid-term break of 1 week in the middle of the semester. That has not changed.

What has changed is the duration of the semesters before and after the breaks. Let's have a look.

2019

First Semester = 12 weeks
Mid Semester break = 1 week
2nd half of First Semester = 8 weeks *
Mid Year Break = 2 weeks
Second Semester = 9 weeks
Mid Semester break = 1 week
2nd half of Second Semester = 14 weeks
Year-end break = 5 weeks

2018

First Semester = 11 weeks
Mid Semester break = 1 week
2nd half of First Semester = 11 weeks *
Mid Year Break = 2 weeks
Second Semester = 8 weeks
Mid Semester break = 1 week
2nd half of Second Semester = 13 weeks
Year-end break = 5 weeks

The changes have been highlighted using different coloured fonts. Did you notice that the first semester is now shorter? 1st Semester is 12 + 8 = 20 weeks in 2019 vs 11 + 11 = 22 weeks in 2018.  It is shortened by 3 weeks in the second half of the first semester ie 8 weeks in 2019 vs 11 weeks in 2019. Did you guess the dates correctly when buying air tickets and travel deals? What do you think of the new term dates?
