The National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) will be held at the College for all students in Years 7 and 9 in March. This is earlier than previous years.

The tests will be undertaken online, with students needing their laptop and a pair of headphones for the tests.

There are four tests that students undertake as part of NAPLAN.

The testing dates for Year 7 are Wednesday 15 March - Friday 17 March.

The testing dates for Year 9 are Wednesday 15 March - Monday 20 March.

It is important that students are present for these tests so please avoid making any appointments on these days. There will be the opportunity for students to undertake a catch-up test on Tuesday 21 March or Friday 24 March should they be absent for a test.

Further communication regarding NAPLAN will be sent via email in the last week of February. This will include the order of the tests, and the lessons when the tests will be held.

In the lead-up to the NAPLAN tests, students will be undertaking practice tests in their English and Mathematics classes, so as to familiarise themselves with the platform.
