Mountain View Adventist College Receives
NAPLAN Recognition Two Years Running!
For a second year in a row, Mountain View Adventist College has achieved substantially above-average gains in both reading and numeracy according to the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA). Principal Tony Hay credits the growth to the efforts of teachers. Gains are measured against the national average, against schools with similar students and against students with similar starting scores.
The results validate the commitment made by the school three years ago to launch a new literacy and numeracy program for students from Kindergarten to Year 9. With 74% of students who speak languages other than English, these programs have had a significant impact on student learning.
Now in Year 10, Mountain View Adventist College student Jade Champness (pictured) spends some of her spare time writing stories and poetry. However, words didn’t always come easily to her. In Kindergarten, she struggled to learn her site words, a spelling list of common words learned by sight rather than through phonics. She transferred from another school to Mountain View Adventist College in Year 4 and by late primary school Jade had become a strong, self-motivated learner.
"She doesn’t need any pushing from me at all, but strives all by herself. She loves school and loves learning," says Corinne Champness, Jade's mother.
Her Year 9 NAPLAN results show that she has achieved growth in her results at a rate that is two to three times what would normally be expected.
The school achieved above average gains across years 5, 7 and 9 across all domains.
"While we would expect to see great results, it is always pleasing to see the above average growth our students are achieving through the programs we are implementing," says school principal Tony Hay.
