NAPLAN Results

​Our overall results indicate that once again our Year 3 and Year 5 have continued to perform above the Australian, State and BCE average, in a number of areas including reading and writing.

This was the second year all students in Brisbane Catholic Education schools have completed NAPLAN online. This is a progressive shift in the way our students experienced this assessment. NAPLAN online provided a better assessment, more precise results and has been more engaging for students. NAPLAN online is a tailored test that adapted to student responses, presenting students with questions that may be more or less difficult – resulting in better assessment and more precise results.

For this reason, the data collected from NAPLAN 2022 provides St Thomas’ with important baseline information to better understand the strengths and opportunities for growth of our students and to evaluate school programs to ensure they are best meeting our students’ needs.

A hard copy of these reports will be sent home with students. The school does not keep copies of these reports, so we advise parents to file these in a safe place.

I would like to remind parents that NAPLAN is one, point-in-time, assessment and does not replace the extensive, ongoing assessments made by teachers about each student’s performance. If you have any concerns about your child’s progress, please discuss this with their teacher.
