Student Testing

National Testing in Numeracy and Literacy (NAPLAN)

Boys in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 will take part in the National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) on Tuesday May 13 (Language Conventions and Writing), Wednesday May 14 (Reading) and Thursday May 15 (Numeracy). The boys will be taking the tests in their classrooms and have been provided with information on where to go and what to bring. The results of the testing will be provided to parents later in the year. Teachers use this information to supplement their knowledge of the boy in order to guide their learning in the most appropriate manner.

Year 11 and 12 WACE Students

Year 11 and 12 WACE students will begin their Semester 1 examinations in Week 2, beginning Tuesday 6 May. All examinations will take place in the Dickinson Centre. It is strongly advised that the boys keep a clear plastic envelope with all their requirements so as to not cause last minute panic. They should ensure they have the correct calculator and that it is in good working order (perhaps bringing a spare) for the specific examination and are ready at school in plenty of time, having checked and double checked the time of the examination.
