Evaluation and Grades
Due to English being the second language for many children, it is
expected that many will take more time to reach the expected levels.
This is nothing to worry about. We would expect children to reach the
age related level by Years 4-6 if learning in their own language is
proceeding well. GO FOR GREEN!! GREEN FOR GO!!
