NAPLAN Results

2019 Year 3 and Year 5 student NAPLAN results will be sent home by Friday this week. Overall, we are happy with our school’s performance. However, here are a few important reminders regarding this test.

  • Even though the NAPLAN tests receive a great deal of public attention it is important to remember that the tests are only a "snapshot" of your child's achievement levels and do not give the full story of the successes enjoyed as he or she moves through the education system.

  • At any school which has the child as its focus, no test can measure the moral, spiritual, physical and educational progress made by a child in the years of schooling.

  • For children whose English is their second language or who may have some learning difficulties, these tests will al-ways present difficulties. This may be reflected in a below average performance. This should not be taken as an indication of their progress at school.

Your child will receive an end of year school report which will be much more reflective of the work that they have done.

If you are a Year 3 or a Year 5 parent and you have any concerns or questions about your child’s NAPLAN report that will be sent home on Friday, please contact me through the school office.
