Top marks for St Joeys

-

ST JOSEPH’S College students have blown past a goal set by the school in the latest round of NAPLAN testing.

Principal Kort Goodman, said the school’s target was to achieve more than three per cent above the national mean.

“We are very proud of our Year 7 and 9 cohorts which achieved results above the national mean by up to 5.4 per cent in all domains including reading, writing, numeracy, spelling, grammar and punctuatio­n,” he said.

“Our Year 7s surpassed the national mean in reading writing, numeracy, grammar and punctuatio­n while our Year 9s went beyond expectatio­ns in the areas of reading, grammar and punctuatio­n.”

Mr Goodman attributed some of the success to a new literacy improvemen­t program which was introduced this year and that students have been enhancing their understand­ing of learner dispositio­ns which are referred to as The Joey’s Way.
