A new public holiday has been announced for Victoria this year. The Grand Final Friday public holiday has been gazetted by the Victorian Government and will be observed by the University annually. Each year this public holiday will take place on the Friday before the AFL Grand Final. This means that ACU's St Patrick’s campus in Melbourne and Aquinas campus in Ballarat will be closed for one day on Friday, 2 October 2015 due to new holiday. Any business activities or services that normally operate on Saturday or Sunday will proceed as usual. These campuses will reopen on Monday, 5 October.
Staff Connect has been updated to reflect the new public holiday. Therefore, any Victorian staff member who has had leave approved for 2 October will not have leave hours deducted for that day. If you have any enquiries, please contact the HR Advisory Service on firstname.lastname@example.org or ext 4222.
Labour Day Holiday
A one-day public holiday will occur on Monday 5 October for ACU campuses based in NSW, ACT, SA and QLD due to Labour Day. These campuses will reopen on Tuesday, 6 October.
