1st Jan is a public holiday and happens to be a Saturday, so 3rd is an off in lieu for schools since they are on a 5-day work week. Not for other government departments though, as chances are they would either be given another day off in lieu, not necessarily to be on the 3rd Jan or have another day credited to their annual leave.
