Wonderful NAPLAN cover letter

You may have seen this in the AACS eNews that we sent out recently. However, many of you didn’t and its worth a quick read. An Age article on 12 Sept tells the story of parents at Altona Primary School receiving their children’s NAPLAN results with the following note attached:

The school is proud of its students as they have demonstrated huge amounts of commitment and tried their very best in the tests. However we are concerned that these tests do not always assess all of what it is that makes each of you special and unique…They do not know that many of you speak two languages. They do not know that you can play a musical instrument, or that you can dance or paint a picture … they do not know you can be trustworthy, kind or thoughtful … So enjoy your results … but remember, there are many ways of being smart!
