NAPLAN At PVIS all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 have the opportunity to sit the NAPLAN (National Assessment Program for Literacy and Numeracy) tests in May of each year. NAPLAN is an Australian based assessment conducted to assess student skills in the areas of numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation. This is optional.
FRENCH is the LOTE (Language other than English) subject taught at PVIS. Regular French lessons are part of the secondary school programme for all students. Both primary and secondary schools have a specialist French teacher.
SPORT and PHYSICAL EDUCATION The school recognises that physical development is equally as important for children as cognitive and social development. The physical education and sport programmes have been developed to encourage individual and group involvement, physical fitness, co-operation, development of movement, competence, leadership, sportsmanship and confidence. There is an emphasis on variety, fun and a sense of achievement.
