Year 7 Assessment

The dates of these tasks can also be accessed via the school calendar (Year 7 tab) on the Sentral Student and Parent Portal

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning. Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

School Reports

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do. In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale
