Dear parents/carers
As you are aware, yesterday was the first day of NAPLAN, which our school is doing online. Unfortunately some connectivity issues were experienced during the test and these issues are currently being investigated.
While this isn’t ideal, please be assured we have procedures to follow to minimise any impacts on our students, including rescheduling the test if required.
National test authorities have advised they regret any inconvenience this has caused to schools and students, and are working to rectify the issue as soon as possible. Thank you.
