Concordia students make significant gains in NAPLAN results

Tuesday 17 Sep

Concordia Lutheran College has been identified by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority as having a “substantially above average gain” in NAPLAN results as students progressed from Year 3 to 5 and Year 7 to 9 from 2016 to 2018.

Concordia is one of 47 schools in Queensland and 268 schools nationally that demonstrated improvements in reading and numeracy that were well above the national average in NAPLAN results last year.

Head of College Mr Adrian Wiles said Concordia had implemented initiatives to enhance student literacy in 2018, including intervention programs for students who require additional support to improve their reading skills.

“The introduction of MiniLit and MultiLit for our Junior College students and MacqLit in the Middle College have proven popular with our students while also providing excellent outcomes in terms of student learning,” Mr Wiles said.

“We look forward to continuing to embed this program in our student learning as well as investigating other opportunities to enhance student literacy and numeracy across all year levels,” he said.
