Year 3

Your child has taken the significant step from infants to primary school and into the first year of Learning Stage 2.

Getting Involved
There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student leadership programs provide many activities that broaden your child’s experience at school.

This is the first year your child sits for the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test held in May. There are four tests covering numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar.

You will receive a report of your child’s achievement in the tests. The results tell you how your child is progressing in these areas and can guide the learning support you give your child at home.
