The national benchmark literacy and numeracy (NAPLAN) testing will take place on the 9th to 11th of May 2017. That is, week 3 of Term 2.

As always, these will be presented to the children as ‘naturally’ as possible – as just another activity in their day. Children who fall in the government categories of Year 3, Year 5, Year 7 and Year 9 will be involved.

We do ask parents to co-operate with the school in helping children to be aware that testing, in itself, does not contribute to their development and that teachers are already aware of their level.

Should you have any concerns regarding your child and national benchmark testing please contact your child’s teacher before Monday 27 February 2017.
