Canberra High School runs a fortnightly timetable with 5 lessons of 58 minutes on most days. There are variations on Thursdays for pastoral care, assemblies and extra-curricular enrichment. We have a 50 minute lunch break with a 24 minute recess break.

Schools begin at 8:40am and students are expected to arrive at school prior to this time. Each day begins with a 7 minute ACE (Assembly, Contact, Enrichment) group. The role is marked for the daily absences during ACE class.

School finishes at 2:50pm.
