Naplan is a national assessment to see how your child’s literacy and numeracy skills and understanding compare against national standards.
In March 2023, national literacy and numeracy assessments were administered to students in Years 7 and 9 throughout Australia.
Reports showing your child’s achievements have been posted and should be arriving in your post boxes shortly.
For more information regarding your student’s Naplan results, please contact the College.

Year 7 Theatre Sports
Year 7 students have been brushing up on their theatre sports. This activity not only nurtures drama skills, it builds self-confidence, creates a positive environment and helps with personal growth.
Year 8 Food Technology
Over the last two weeks of Term 2 the Year 8 Food Technology students have been introduced to the school kitchens. They have learnt some basic food handling skills, including many that they can continue to practice at home such as how to correctly wash and dry the dishes, light the ovens, and sweep the floor.
The students have shown great skill in the preparation of a Chicken Caesar Salad. This dish incorporated the use of techniques such as boiling a hard-boiled egg, frying bacon and chicken on the stoves and baking crispy croutons in the oven.
This term students have been continuing to develop their food preparation skill s through the design and production of Nachos. To further support their literacy skills, student were required to write individualised recipes for their dish.
The design brief for the dish included students opting for a healthy well balanced nacho dish with meat or another alternative protein such as beans, a vegetable ingredient, and must be prepared using the oven.
Just take a look at their delicious creations, they should be so proud!
