STU­DENTS study­ing for the OLNA (On­line Lit­er­acy and Nu­mer­acy As­sess­ment) in high school can gain the tools they need for the test at Phoenix Academy in Leed­erville.

The OLNA test is ad­min­is­tered in schools for Year 10 stu­dents in March and Septem­ber ev­ery year, and in­cludes three com­po­nents: read­ing, writ­ing and nu­mer­acy.

Stu­dents need to pass this test to en­ter the ATAR stream in Year 11, as well as to re­ceive the WACE at the end of Year 12.

The academy has de­vel­oped a short course that fa­mil­iarises stu­dents with the de­mands of this test and pre­pares them to pass it suc­cess­fully.

The course cov­ers such key at­tributes as the abil­ity to read quickly through skim­ming and scan­ning strate­gies and read­ing for gist and de­tail.
