Boys in Year 7 and Year 9 will soon undertake the annual NAPLAN tests, which will be conducted at the College on 15 – 17 May.
The tests provide valuable data relating to literacy and numeracy standards at national, state, school and individual student levels. The tests are carefully devised and are assessed by external examiners. Results will be released to families and schools in September via the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority.
