St John Vianney’s NAPLAN results have now been published and students in Years 3 and 5 will receive their individual reports this week. As a school, our results across the year levels in Literacy and Numeracy, have improved from previous years. I would like to thank our teachers for their work with their students and the students themselves for performing so well.

This is the second year all students in Brisbane Catholic Education schools have completed NAPLAN online. This has been a progressive shift in the way our students have experienced this assessment. NAPLAN online has provided a better assessment, more precise results and been more engaging for students. NAPLAN online is a tailored test that adapted to student responses, presenting students with questions that may be more or less difficult – resulting in better assessment and more precise results.

For this reason, the data collected from NAPLAN 2022 provides St John Vianney’s Manly with important baseline information to better understand the strengths and opportunities for the growth of our students and to evaluate school programs to ensure they are best meeting our students’ needs.

Our school had a goal to increase the number of students in the upper two bands in all areas. I can proudly let you know that we have grown the number of students in the upper 2 bands in all areas.

I would like to remind parents that NAPLAN is one, point-in-time, assessment and does not replace the extensive, ongoing assessments made by teachers about each student’s performance. If you have any concerns about your child’s progress, please discuss this with their teacher.
