In January, May and June of each year, Grade 6 and 9 students throughout the province and here at SWL will write Provincial Achievement Tests in language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.
Attached at the side of this page is a letter for parents regarding these exams.
Below you will see the PAT exam schedule for SWL.
SWL Provincial Achievement Test Dates
Please note Provincial Achievement Tests have been cancelled for the 2019-2020 school year.
All students must be in the
classrooms by 9 am. Attendance will
be taken and instructions will be given at that time. Any student
arriving after the start time of the exam must report directly to the office
for instructions. The Provincial Achievement Tests are timed tests
so it is imperative that students arrive on time. Students are
required to sit the exam for 2 hours prior to being dismissed. Students
who need additional time are welcome to take it. You can help your
child do well on the tests if you ensure they are well rested, have eaten a
good breakfast and come to school with a bottle of water, a healthy snack, and
a book to read. School bells will be turned off during exam times and we
will not be able to call any students to the office as this interrupts students
who are still writing the exam.
