2016 NAPLAN Results: Year 7 and Year 9

It is always important to keep NAPLAN results in perspective. They provide useful feedback for teachers, as they indicate the strengths and weaknesses of students and allow them to focus on areas that need improvement. However, NAPLAN results are often used as a ranking tool for individuals or for each school (as on the MySchool website), and here they are less reliable. No matter how good the results are (or the reverse), it must be…

The first was on 23 March when we visited the Year 12 Perspectives Exhibition at the Art Gallery of WA with both the Year 11 and Year 12 Visual Arts General students. We travelled on the new bus to the Gallery which saved a lot of time as we used to walk to the train. Both year groups enjoyed seeing last year’s…
