Calmness the key for NAPLAN

9th May 2017

LNP Shadow Education Minister Tracy Davis wishes all Queensland children sitting NAPLAN tests over the next few days the very best of luck.

“NAPLAN testing starts today for three days and we want this to be a meaningful process and for our kids to do their best,” Ms Davis said.

“This is an important test to mark a set time in a student’s learning progress, but at the same time we don’t want any child to feel stressed by what they are being tested on.

“This year will see one of the largest number of students sitting the test, which is encouraging.

“Our teachers, parents and school communities have worked hard to help students prepare for their NAPLAN test and we look forward to seeing some great results and improvements in certain areas.

“My message to families throughout NAPLAN test week is to support your child to do their best, encourage them to feel confident and ease any worry they may have about the process.”
