Eagleby South State School leads the way with great results


Australia,Feb 19/2013 : Senator the Hon Jacinta Collins

Parliamentary Secretary for School Education and Workplace Relations
More students at Eagleby South State School are performing above the National Minimum Standard thanks to the Gillard Government's Smarter Schools national partnerships.

Visiting the school today, Parliamentary Secretary for School Education, Senator Jacinta Collins, said the school has been chosen as one of 100 schools across the country which are being highlighted on the Government's new Better Schools website.

"Thanks to the extra funding provided through the national partnerships, Eagleby South State School has dramatically improved its NAPLAN results," Senator Collins said.

"Over 65% of year 3 students are now above the National Minimum Standard in numeracy, compared to 30% in 2008.

"Also, over 50% of year 7 students are reading above the National Minimum Standard, compared with less than 25% in 2008.

"This is a great result, but as always there is more work to do.

Senator Collins said Eagleby South State School has used the money from the Low SES National Partnership to employ a Literacy Support Aide and a Learning Support Aide to assist with improving numeracy at the school.

"Congratulations to Principal Barnes, teachers, parents and most importantly the students.

"It just goes to show that when you target extra money at the things we know work, it can really produce results," Senator Collins said.

Senator Collins said under the Gillard Government's National Plan for School Improvement, more money would be available to schools across the country to invest in the things that get results, like teacher training, extra resources, more parental involvement and more power for local principals.

"The Gillard Government is committed to giving every student in every classroom access to a great education, and to lifting our national education standards so Australia can remain prosperous and secure," she said.
