NAPLAN Success

24/08/2015

​Mareeba State School performed strongly in NAPLAN this year, with some outstanding results in Years 3 and 5.

Highlights of this year's NAPLAN data include:

- 97% of Year 3 students achieved the National Minimum Standard in Numeracy.

- 100% of Year 3 boys achieved the National Minimum Standard in Numeracy.

- 93.9% of Indigenous students achieved National Minimum Standard in Numeracy this year (88.9% in 2014)

- The percentage of Indigenous students in Year 3 achieving the Upper Two Bands (i.e. well above National Minimum Standard) in Reading has doubled this year.

- The percentage of Year 3 students in the Upper Two Bands for Writing has increased from 33% in 2014 to 45.7% in 2015.

- In Grammar and Punctuation a hugely pleasing 57.9% of students achieved in the Upper Two Bands.

- In Year 5, 91.5% of students achieved NMS in Reading (This figure last year was 82.0%)

- 83.7% achieved NMS in Writing (compared with 79.8% last year).

- 89.4% achieved NMS in Spelling (80.9% in 2014).

- 92.3% achieved NMS in Grammar and Punctuation (78.7% in 2014).

- 93.1% achieved NMS in Numeracy (up from 80.7% last year).

Furthermore, the number of students in Upper Two Bands in Writing doubled this year.

Finally, the percentage of Indigenous students at National Minimum Standard for Numeracy has risen from 50% to 87% this year.

Results indicate that whilst we have done well across the Strands, we need to maintain our whole school focus on Reading to continue to close the gap that exists between our school and the national mean.

Congratulations to all the staff, students and parents at Mareeba State School on these wonderful results!
