Stage 2 - Years 3 & 4

Stage 2 includes students in Years 3 and 4 and is a time where teachers work with students to consolidate and build upon their current level of skills and knowledge, with an emphasis on greater responsibility and independence. This all aims to create a firm foundation for lifelong learning.

This year, Stage 2 is organised into six classes - 2/3B, 3G, 3T, 4B, 4H & 4S. Stage 2 classes and teachers work collaboratively to achieve shared outcomes.

Stage 2 students attend Years 3-6 assemblies.

Students receive academic, special and sports awards. Some are given out at assemblies, others throughout the week.

Students are also involved in primary sport, attend the swimming and athletics carnivals and cross-country carnival. Stage 2 students participate regularly in Friday afternoon PSSA and school sport programs, as well as fundamental movement skills in weekly Stage 2 Personal Development lessons.

If you have a child in Stage 2 and you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact any of the Stage 2 teachers.

Year 3

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

National test

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.

Year 4

Year 4 is the second and final 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.

Opportunity classes

An opportunity class placement Test is open to all Year 4 students to assess eligibility for opportunity class places. Opportunity classes are available for academically gifted and talented children in Years 5 and 6 at some schools. If you would like your child to sit this test, please ask us for an application package available from May. The test is held between late July and early August.
