Edition 149 - Thursday 1st April 2021

Naplan 2021

From Wednesday 12th to Tuesday 18th  May (Weeks 4 and 5 of Term 2), our school will participate in NAPLAN Online. The information brochure for parents and carers addresses common questions about NAPLAN Online testing.

All students in Year 7 and Year 9 will participate in four online tests in writing, reading, conventions of language (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy.

Students will have the opportunity to use the demonstration site in class before the test window to help them familiarise themselves with the types of questions and tools available in the NAPLAN Online tests.

Students with a school preferred device will take the online tests on their own laptop. If your daughter uses a non-preferred device she will be provided with a school laptop for each test. All students will need to bring either headphones, earphones or earbuds as they will be required to use an audio player.

An indicative timetable follows for your reference. Students will be emailed a final timetable for the online tests along with information about what they need to bring for each test in Term 2. We are required to hold the writing test on Wednesday 12th or Thursday 13th May for all students. Students in Year 9 will take the writing test on the Wednesday morning before they leave for their Leadership Camp.

If you have any questions about NAPLAN Online, please contact the school on telephone 9922 6666.
