At OLGC we firmly believe that solid literacy and numeracy skills form the basis of a sound education. Each year all students in Years 3 and 5, undertake the national literacy and numeracy (NAPLAN) tests which provide an indication of student achievement in these areas.
While NAPLAN is important, it is only one measure and should be considered in the context of each student’s overall performance at school. It is pleasing that OLGC students perform consistently well across all parameters.
Year 3 – 100% of students achieved at or above the standard results for reading, writing, spelling, grammar & punctuation and numeracy
Year 5 – 100% of students achieved at or above the standard results for reading, writing, spelling, grammar & punctuation and numeracy.
Students at OLGC from Year 2 - 5 participate in the International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS). ICAS is a suite of competitions designed specifically for primary and secondary students. Parents decide if they would like their child to complete the English and Mathematics assessments and pay a fee per paper. Each ICAS test is a multiple choice format and is designed to assess students’ academic ability.
Students are awarded with Certificates of Participation, Merit, Credit, Distinction and High Distinction.
