Test results show high performance in smaller schools

FRASER Coast primary schools will end Term 3 with a celebration of strong scores in the annual national NAPLAN tests.

The results were released earlier this week and showed a high performance from smaller schools such as Parke and Bauple state schools.

St Helen's State School head of curriculum Sally Rankine said there had been a definite improvement on last year's results.

"We are elated," she said.

"We've been working really deliberately at achieving this."

The school's entire Year 5 cohort scored at or above the national minimum standard, while its Year 7 group had 100% score at the national standard across three of five categories.

At Urangan Point State School, principal Damien Gainsford said results were trending upwards, but still had some way to go.
