Term dates can vary from school to school, so it is up to each individual school to set up their own calendar each year (with some additional help from the VSware support team). These steps are an important part of the timetable publishing process because without them, your new timetable will not be visible. 


Remember, releasing your new timetable to the staff, parents and students is a three part process. Click here to learn more about publishing.
