The 2018 NAPLAN results were finally released on the My School website yesterday. It is great news for Tangara students!

Our girls achieved strongly in literacy and numeracy, compared with students from similar schools. When compared with all Australian students, Tangara students achieved above, or substantially above, the average on every indicator.

More importantly, the results show how Tangara successfully grows our girls. Between Years 3 and 5, Years 5 and 7, and Years 7 and 9, on average, Tangara students showed more gain than students from similar schools, and higher gain than students who had the same starting point.

While we all understand that there is much more to a well-rounded education than NAPLAN scores, we are thrilled with the results. They demonstrate Tangara’s commitment to grow every child academically, so that each one achieves her or his personal best. Of course our focus is also on the spiritual, social, physical and emotional growth of every child. I congratulate the students on their excellent progress, and thank the teachers, tutors and our parents for such a successful partnership.
