Prince of Peace students have outperformed the Queensland average in all year levels and all areas of assessment in this year’s NAPLAN testing.

Between 80 and 100 per cent of Prince of Peace students tested also scored above the national minimum score (NMS), with more than 90 per cent of students performing above the NMS in most areas.

Head of College Phil Hulland said it was pleasing to see that students have clearly worked hard to reach their individual potential.

“Our purpose at Prince of Peace is to focus on and encourage each child to achieve individual excellence,” Mr Hulland said.

“We follow a deliberate and purposeful Teaching and Learning Framework designed to inform and guide students through their education, whilst also preparing them for life after school.

“We are always seeking to improve our students’ educational outcomes, and we are already analysing this year’s NAPLAN results to identify areas where we believe we can get even better,” said Mr Hulland.

National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) testing is conducted nationally, and assesses the skills of all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy. NAPLAN provides a measure of how students are performing against national standards.
