2015 NAPLAN Results: Wilson Primary

Recently, the results from the Year 3 and Year 5 NAPLAN tests were sent home to parents. It is pleasing to see the school mean is above, and in most cases well above, the National average (which is itself above the State average). This year’s results were also an improvement on last year’s, which were also above both the National and Stage average.

The Merits of NAPLAN

The 2015 NAPLAN testing took place from 12-14 May.

This compared favourably to…

Being a Light to the Nations

Year 5 students recently Skyped Owen and Sarah Ames, who are missionaries in Japan. Over this Term, our class has been learning about Japan, its culture, language, geography, and art, as well as its religion. With less than 0.5% Christians, Japan is a needy place for the gospel.

So, to learn more about this, the class asked questions about the church and cafe outreach Owen and Sara have started. It was great to see every student engaged…

What goes into writing a children’s picture book? Primary LEX@R students were amazed to discover the nuances of deceptively simple books in a recent workshop on “Write Your Own Picture Book” at the Literature Centre in Fremantle.

Students discussed David Unaipon, the Aboriginal man on our…
