Time

Morisset High School

Students in Years 7 and 9 will take part in compulsory NAPLAN testing. NAPLAN assessments provide schools with valuable information about a student's learning progress in literacy and numeracy. NAPLAN is only one way schools assess student learning in years 3, 5, 7 and 9. NAPLAN assessments will take place at Morisset High School from Wednesday, March 13 to Monday, March 18, 2024. Our teachers will help our students get ready for NAPLAN and will provide appropriate support and guidance. Students will become familiar with the types of questions in the tests and the online testing platforms that are used. Below are some helpful tips for families to help prepare their child/children for their NAPLAN assessments. Preparation for NAPLAN Students are not expected to study for NAPLAN and do not need excessive preparation or the use of services by coaching providers.  You can support your child by reassuring them that NAPLAN is a part of their school program. If you or your child/children would like to know more about the NAPLAN online platform you can go to the public demonstration site and do some practice tests and past NAPLAN papers are also available online. Participation in NAPLAN Adjustments are available for students who have diverse functional abilities and needs. On a case-by-case basis, reasonable adjustments for individual students can be made so they can complete NAPLAN. Speak to your child’s teacher to discuss the adjustments available. For more information read the Guide for schools to assist students with disability to access NAPLAN. Assessment tips You can support your child by reminding them to simply do their best. You can also encourage: a healthy diet drinking lots of water limiting caffeine (students in years 7 and 9 only) getting enough sleep exercise and relaxation time These along with arriving at school on time and ready to sit the tests will help prepare our school to bring their best on the day. If you have any questions or need support contact the school on (02) 4973 1999.
