– the results are out!
Well done to all students!
Between 92% and 93% of Year 9 students participated in the NAPLAN testing in May of this year.
There was sustained improvement in the percentage of students achieving national minimum standards in the reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation and numeracy tests.
90% of students achieved national minimum standards in Numeracy. This is the highest percentage achieved in our NAPLAN testing results over the years!
In the writing component students did particularly well in text cohesion, spelling, paragraphing and audience.
49 students in Reading and 19 students in Numeracy made significant progress in their testing results between Year 7 and Year 9.
Individual Achievements – Bands 9 and 10 are the highest achievable.
36 Band 9s were achieved and 4 Band 10s! Spelling, in particular, accounted for half of these band achievements.
