Years 7 to 9 Math
We have just completed our yearly exams for Years 7- 9. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate some of our top performing students in those exams:
Gaumitha Jeganathan in Year 7 got 96%.
Jessica Harrison in Year 8 got 95%
Ben Armstrong in Year 9 got 92%.
These hard working individuals deserve to be congratulated on their consistent effort needed to perform so well in their exams. I would also like to take the opportunity to congratulate all of Years 7 and 9 on their efforts demonstrated in the NAPLAN results.
Eighty one percent of Year 7 students at PCS were at or above the expected growth in Numeracy than when tested in Year 5 in 2016. This is 20% above the state.
Seventy one percent of our students in Year 9 were at or above the expected growth from their Year 7 NAPLAN testing completed in 2016. This is 10% more than the state.
Well done Mathematics students of PCS!
Mr Joemon Philip
Head of Informatics and Mathematics
