ANZAC Day & NAPLAN

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

Thank you to Mr Stanek-Bakes and our middle school students for their respectful ANZAC Day commemoration ceremony on Tuesday. Thank you to the staff and students for your time and effort spent making the class wreaths.

On Tuesday, May 15, 16 and 17, Grade 3 and Grade 5 students in all primary schools in Australia will be participating in the annual NAPLAN tests. The areas tested are Language Conventions (Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation), Persuasive or Narrative Writing, Reading Comprehension and Mathematics. The results of the tests provide valuable information for parent/guardians and teachers about individual children’s performance in Literacy and Numeracy. Later in the year, parents will receive a detailed report describing their own child’s particular skills in the areas that have been tested by NAPLAN. The report will also illustrate how each child has performed in relation to national benchmark standards. Grade 5 parents will have the benefit of seeing how much progress their child has made since he/she completed the Grade 3 NAPLAN tests.
