NAPLAN Results

Churchie’s exceptional record of academic excellence is demonstrated by students consistently outperforming the mean in the annual National Assessment Programme – Literacy and Numeracy tests (NAPLAN). Churchie’s strength in the NAPLAN tests is largely due to the effort we take in understanding the specific academic development of each boy.
