At Firbank we have ongoing assessment tasks. These vary according to the subject and can include topic tests, assignments, oral tests and practical tasks.

Interim online reports and detailed semester reports at the end of each semester are delivered via the Portal.

During the year, all Year 7 students:

  1. Complete compulsory NAPLAN assessment

  3. Participate in a variety of mathematics, science and language competitions.

You’ll have access to personalised information (including regular reports about your child’s learning progress), resources, and updates that will keep you informed and engaged every step of the way. As we continue to develop FLIP, our goal is to make it the go-to platform for parents, guardians, teachers, and students alike.
