Message from the Principal regarding NAPLAN

Dear parents and caregivers

I understand there has been significant discussion in the media and community in regards to some concerns about NAPLAN online. Many schools, particularly larger secondary schools, have reported being plagued by long-lasting dropouts and glitches. This is a nationwide issue and the national testing authority, ACARA, is convening to determine if this will have any impact upon the Year 5 writing. I am pleased to report that while we have experienced some minor connectivity issues, we have had a relatively smooth first half to NAPLAN. Our staff and students are to be commended on their calm and resilient approach to any technical difficulties. If you have any concerns about the testing process, please speak to your child’s teacher, Chris John or myself.

Kind regards

Kirsten Dicker
Principal
