The VCAA is responsible for the National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) in Victoria.
NAPLAN is a national assessment for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9, that is undertaken every year in early May.
NAPLAN is made up of tests in four areas (or ‘domains’):
The results of the tests provide information for students, parents, teachers and principals about student achievement which can be used to inform teaching and learning programs. NAPLAN tests provide point-in-time information regarding student progress in literacy and numeracy and are intended to complement teacher judgement and the wide range of formal and informal testing programs that are already used in schools. As with all single assessments, NAPLAN test results are not intended to be used in isolation from other school-based assessment programs.
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has responsibility for the central management of the NAPLAN and a Test Administration Authority (TAA) in each state or territory is responsible for the implementation of the tests.
The VCAA is the TAA for all Victorian schools and school sectors.
For more information for parents and students, please go to

We are pleased to announce our school production for 2018 is ‘Grease’.
Auditions have been held, the cast list has been released and we are so proud to say that we have many talented students here at Hampton Park Secondary College.
All students involved in Grease are reminded that rehearsals are every Wednesday after school until 5.30pm.
Hampton Park Secondary College offers an exciting and inspiring Instrumental Music Program, which includes a variety of musical instruments to learn, specializing in rock, pop and contemporary music. Learning to play an instrument is a fun activity, which enables students to be creative and ignite a passion for Music. It also requires dedication and exceptional team work and there are many opportunities for students to perform (when they are ready!).
We offer Instrumental Lessons on the following instruments;
- guitar/bass guitar
Where possible, all students should have their own instrument to practice on at home (brass, woodwind and keyboard instruments can be hired from the school and drummers only need sticks and a practice pad). Please contact us if you would like assistance with instrument purchase or hiring.
Before your child can begin their lessons they must return the permission slip to the office with payment for 2018. The cost for the year is great value at $120. Payment can be made upfront in full or through a payment plan by using your credit card. Payments are also non-refundable. Lessons will be run in groups of approximately 4 students. Students will be advised of their lesson times early in the year and/or shortly after payment has been received. Please note that our program operates during school hours and students come out of regular classes, alternated each week, to attend instrumental lessons once a week.
Our Instrumental Program operates in the River Gum Performing Arts Centre. This building has created the opportunity for collaboration between teachers and the creation of a common vision for Music Education. We work together in this building sharing learning areas and music equipment. Our staff are highly qualified instrumental teachers each specializing in the tuition of their primary instrument.
Sign up days will be closer to the event, and will be announced at school. For any questions regarding the Sports program, speak with Ms Bree Peart.

Sickbay acts as a first-aid station only.
If your child is unwell in the morning, it is best they remain at home.
Should they become ill at school they will be attended to by a First Aid attendant. If it is considered necessary for the child to be sent home, parents/caregivers will be contacted. Parents/caregivers are asked to collect their children promptly. If parents/caregivers are not contactable the Emergency contact person will be called. Please make sure that your student contact details are up to date. These can be updated via Compass School Manager.
Students are NOT PERMITTED to RING/TEXT their parents/caregivers themselves OR leave the school without permission.
If your child requires regular medication to be administered during school hours, parents/caregivers need to send the medication to school, clearly labelled, and it must be accompanied by a completed Medication authority form.
Please be aware the school does not keep a supply of painkillers (Panadol or other medication) for student use.
