NAPLAN Testing for 2017 has now been completed. Results won’t be available for parents and schools until September. Discussions with students have been positive and the general mood was one of calm and purpose. Both Year 7 and Year 9 students were comfortable with the testing processes and procedures and I thank not only the staff involved but parents and students for their cooperation and support throughout NAPLAN week.
