The results of the 2016 NAPLAN have been released and Fraser Coast Anglican College are justifiably feeling very proud of their achievements, being not only well above the Queensland Average, but also above the National Average across all 20 test areas.
“This is a significant achievement and a wonderful result for our entire College Community.” said Principal, Mrs Leisa Harper.
In the world of heavyweight data analytics, it’s a wonderful honour and College Principal Leisa Harper said she was proud of the collective effort behind these achievements. “I would like to pay tribute to the staff for their ongoing desire to improve their own practice as well as develop new and innovative ways of working with students at FCAC,” she said. “Our students play an integral role in this and other external results by the effort and determination they display to do the best that they can in all that they do.”
“There will always be critical review of our results and we are always looking at ways we can improve and enhance the learning experience for our students.” added Mrs Harper.
“I am very proud that FCAC is able to provide such high quality education in the Fraser Coast region. It is important for future growth that people who wish to move here, can be very confident that their children are going to be able to access a very high standard of education and these accolades prove that our Colleges achievements compare favourably with the best academic schools in Queensland and Australia.
“We are proud of our academic approach and the results the students have received in recent years, but our philosophy goes much deeper than that. This result reflects educational outcomes supported through the holistic nature of our teaching and learning, provided from Kindergarten right through to Year 12, developing the students’ critical thinking and creative skills.
“Our mission is to provide a supportive Christian community and a high quality learning environment which enriches the body, mind and spirit, challenging each individual student to develop a love of learning, build confidence, serve others, have options for the future and to realise their potential,” Mrs Harper said.
