As students sat for NAPLAN examinations across the country, it was just another day for Wellington Public School.
Last year's test results were strong in all aspects of literacy and numeracy and relieving principal Deb McCreadie said this year's results would provide the school with information that would assist with further programming to ensure students were provided with the best possible support. "NAPLAN complements a whole range of assessments that take place in the school," she said. "We feel it's just a regular day and we let the kids know there is nothing to be stressed about. What we ask is that students do the best they possibly can, and we always hope the results will be improving."
It has been a busy week at Wellington Public School between NAPLAN and the book fair which is on every afternoon until 3.30pm in the library. The book fair also takes place all day on Friday and the library's theme is "the kingdom of books". St Mary's Catholic School were also relaxed on the day. Two weeks ago they had an information night with Leanne Clarke and the director of NAPLAN.
