There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student leadership programs provide many activities that broaden your child's experience at school.
All Year 5 students sit for the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in May. It involves four tests that cover numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. See NAPLAN - literacy and numeracy (also in community languages).
The results of the NAPLAN test help teachers meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a report of your child's achievement in the NAPLAN test. The results tell you how your child is progressing in these areas and can guide the learning support you give your child at home.
