Stage 3 - Years 5 & 6

This year, Stage 3 is organised into 4 classes - 5L, 5S, 6B & 6G. Stage 3 classes and teachers work collaboratively to achieve shared outcomes.

Stage 3 students attend Years 3-6 assemblies. 

They receive academic, special and sports awards. Some awards 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 3 students participate regularly in Friday afternoon PSSA and school sport programs, as well as fundamental movement skills in weekly class Personal Development lessons.

If you have a child in Stage 3 and you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact any of the Stage 3 teachers.

Year 5

Your child has progressed to Learning Stage 3, the final stage of primary school.

National test

All Year 5 students sit for the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in May. It involves four tests that cover numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. SeeNAPLAN - literacy and numeracy (also in community languages).

The results of the NAPLAN test help teachers meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a report of your child's achievement in the NAPLAN test. The results tell you how your child is progressing in these areas and can guide the learning support you give your child at home.

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.

Selective high school application

Students wishing to be considered for enrolment in a selective high schoolwill need to complete an application this year. Application packages are available in October and the entry exam is taken when your child is in Year 6. See selective high school placement test (also in communi ty languages).

Year 6 is the final year of primary school and an exciting time as students can take a leadership role in our school. We work together with high schools to assist our Year 6 students to have a successful start to high school.
