Head Lights

gloudemans-tonia-teagloThis week, girls in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 experienced a huge range of emotions as they sat the NAPLAN tests, which assess student knowledge and skills in Writing, Reading, Language Conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and Numeracy. There were nervous giggles and dances, the odd tear or two, and widespread concentration and determination. I believe there was also one “I love NAPLAN!” exclamation.

Although we understand that NAPLAN testing is only one measure of a young person’s achievements and talents, we nonetheless recognise the inherent value of the tests – it allows schools to critically examine teaching programs and levels of support (or indeed challenge) required by individual students. Well done girls, parents and teachers for your participation and support!
