NAPLAN testing occurs annually in May for our Year 3, 5, 7 & 9 students. This assessment is part of a national testing program that allows schools to track progress over an extended period of time using a standardised tool aligned to National Curriculum. This year’s tests will be conducted on the 15th, 16th & 17th May. In preparing students for these tests it is most important that we reinforce the importance of remaining relaxed and doing their best as the tests will capture the knowledge they have gained through everyday teaching. As a school, we prepare students for this style of testing as it is quite different to the regular ongoing assessment methods used by schools to collect ongoing data about student progress. We look forward to supporting our Year 3 & 5 students in the lead up to this year’s testing.
