On Thursday 24 October, Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 students of Al Amanah College, Liverpool were recognised for their fantastic achievements in the 2019 NAPLAN assessment. The following assessment tests the types of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. The tests cover skills in reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy. The assessments are undertaken every year in the second full week in May.
Australia's future depends upon each citizen having the knowledge, understanding, skills and values necessary to provide the basis for a productive and rewarding life for citizens in an educated, just and open society. High-quality schooling is central to achieving this vision. Here at Al Amanah College, we promote these values, supporting students in their mission to excel in not only the areas of literacy and numeracy but all facets of their education.
This year, students who achieved the top two bands in three or more domains were recognised for their achievements. Also, students who had a calculated growth of over 100 points over the years were awarded for their significant improvement. Recognising student progress is essential to our growth, giving students a standard to strive towards and ensuring that each individual has a focused approach towards their studies.
A special mention to the executive staff and teachers who worked tirelessly to support students during this time along with those who assisted during the NAPLAN Saturday sessions.
Congratulations to all students who received an award during today’s ceremony.
