Labour Day Holiday


Monday 1st May is Labour Day Public Holiday.


School and Helping Hands are closed.​


Labour Day is an annual public holiday that celebrates the eight-hour working day, a victory for workers in the mid-late 19th century. The argument for the eight-hour day was based on the need for each person to have eight hours labour, eight hours recreation and eight hours rest.​
