The earlier Festivals were held at the end of Term 1 of the school year, when the year was a 3 term year. Today it is always held at the end of Term 2 of the school year as schools now have a 4 term year. Speech and Drama is usually the 2nd and 3rd last weeks of the term, Music is usually the last and 2nd last weeks of the term and Dance is usually the 1½ weeks of school holidays.
