Mount St Joseph on Honour Roll for NAPLAN Growth

March 9, 2018

 

Mount St Joseph has been recognised by the Daily Telegraph for the outstanding learning growth consistently achieved by our students.

More than twenty girls jumped three or four bands in their Writing skills, when an expected rate of improvement would usually be close to one band. And a whopping 87.5% of our Year 9 students achieved greater than or equal to expected growth in Numeracy. Grace Bourke-Winfield, who was highlighted in the article, Catholic girls’ school Mount St Joseph Milperra achieves top results in numeracy, is one of these students.

The average growth of literacy and, in particular, numeracy skills of MSJ girls significantly exceeds the growth of students across NSW. In 2017, a large proportion of our Year 9 students achieved an increase of two or more bands in NAPLAN, with 65 girls improving 2 or more bands in Writing, 44 girls improving 2 or more bands in Numeracy, and 30 girls improving 2 or more bands in Reading. These results, which are consistent with previous years, demonstrate the exceptional improvement that happens after students start their high school learning at Mount St Joseph.
