Outstanding NAPLAN Results!
 
As expected, Toolooa SHS has performed exceptionally well again this year across all domains tested in NAPLAN. Not only did our students produce outstanding scores, but their improvements (relative gains) were absolutely out-of-sight! For us at Toolooa, this is the most important element of the results; we expect our students to be improving every day and we can see by these results that they are certainly meeting that expectation.
 
The following snippet provides information regarding our students’ performance in the key target areas of the 2017 tests:

 
I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank every staff member at Toolooa SHS for everything they have done to influence this outstanding achievement and the work that they will continue to do to make sure that every student continues to grow in the future. In addition, a big congratulations must go out to our current Year 7 and 9 students who have engaged with Toolooa’s agenda and more importantly, their own academic performance.
 
Individual student NAPLAN reports will be mailed home in the next two weeks. If you wish to discuss your child’s report; or you have any questions regarding their report, please don’t hesitate to contact the school. While it is an external test, we are more than happy to discuss your child’s progress.
