Next week our students in Years 3 and 5 will be participating in NAPLAN. There is much information available regarding these tests including the fact that it is a National series of tests and conducted across all school sectors. Any parent is entitled to withdraw their child from either all of the NAPLAN papers or one particular NAPLAN paper. I would also like to remind parents that this information is only part of the information that should be looked at to gain an understanding of how a child is performing. To gain an accurate picture, many aspects of student growth and achievement need to be taken into account. If you would like to discuss either NAPLAN or any aspect of your child's learning profile please make an appointment with your child's teacher.
This term is also a busy term in sport with a number of teams ready to participate in PSSA knockouts, competitions and selection trials.
As jumpers come on and off with play and movement across the playground, could parents please ensure that all clothing is clearly labelled with the student's name.
Finally, School Photos will be going home this week. Please keep an eye out for them in your child's school bag.
