As a school based in the Mt Lofty Ranges, we are subject to a school closure on days of Catastrophic Fire Danger. For information regarding the site’s plan in such a situation, please see the document below.
The National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) takes place each year for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 and has been an everyday part of the school calendar since 2008.
NAPLAN helps parents, carers and educators to see if children are meeting important numeracy and literacy standards.
The move to NAPLAN Online started in 2018. Moving online means NAPLAN is transitioning from paper-based tests to computer-based assessments. The aim is for schools to transition to online testing by 2020.
Online testing brings many benefits and opportunities including providing better assessment, more precise results and faster turnaround of information.
More information on NAPLAN Online is available at www.nap.edu.au/naplan/parent-carer-support/
