The National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) for year 3, 5, 7 and 9 takes place from May 15 -17th which is Week 3 Term 2.
All schools in Australia participate in the assessment program at the same time. There are four components:- Language Conventions; Writing; Reading and Numeracy. All students in years 3, 5 and 7 will participate in the assessment program. If your child is absent during this period there is the possibility of completing the assessments upon their return to school on Friday May 18th.
Student work is marked by a panel of external markers with results being returned to the school and parents later in the year, usually September.
If there are parents who have questions regarding their child sitting the test, please contact Paul Luke or Rob Warncken prior to the test to discuss this. This includes parents wishing to withdraw their child from a part or all of the test.
