Festive School Holidays (Cuti Perayaan) 2019

The school calendar (takwim sekolah) is released in two parts each year by the Ministry of Education-MOE (Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia-KPM). The first part, which is the takwim sekolah  will come out earlier while the cuti perayaan will be released later around November/December.

You can view our earlier post on the Malaysia School Holidays and Public Holidays 2019 by clicking on the image below.

This post deals with the second part of the MOE/KPM announcement on the Festive School Holiday dates which was missing from the earlier given dates. Together with the earlier post, you can find out all of the school dates and holiday dates for 2019 inclusive of public holidays, term holidays and festive holidays.

The festive school holidays or Cuti Perayaan 2019 has just been announced and it is as shown below.

1. Chinese New Year school holidays 2019 is from 3rd February (Monday) to 8th February (Friday) 2019 for schools in Kumpulan B. It starts and ends on day earlier for schools in Kumpulan A. If you add in the two weekends and the start and end of the Chinese New Year school holidays, you get 9 days off.

2. Hari Raya Aidil Fitri school holidays 2019 is listed as 5,6 & 10 June 2019 for Kumpulan B and 5,6 & 9 June for Kumpulan A. However, 5 & 6 June are public holidays and Hari Raya Aidil Fitri falls within the mid term school holidays which is from 25th May to 9th June for Kumpulan B and starts and ends one day earlier for Kumpulan A. This means that one additional day ie 10th June for Kumpulan B or 9th June for Kumpulan B  is added to the mid term school holidays for Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. 17 days off in all inclusive of the school term holidays.

3. Hari Deepavali school holidays 2019 is effectively from 25th October to 29th October for all states except Sarawak which is listed as 25, 27 & 28 October 2019, we're not really sure why. 5 days off in all since this is over one weekend.

Kumpulan A schools include schools in Kedah, Johor, Kelantan and Terengganu while Kumpulan B covers schools in all other states.
