Our teachers know their students and work with them to help them realise their potential as learners. Our focus on authentic learning and authentic assessment ensures that we challenge our students to grow in their learning and achieve their personal best.
Throughout our community of Sydney Catholic schools, we have shown high performance of our students in measures such as NAPLAN and the HSC.
At Marion Catholic Primary School Horsley Park, assessment is seen as a crucial tool in the learning cycle whilst challenging students and measuring their success. A wide variety of assessment tools are used. In class assessments and standardised tests such as NAPLAN, Progressive Achievement Tests (PAT), The Religious Education test and ICAS assessments are used in all classrooms. We have been able to demonstrate strong growth, particularly in Reading and Religious Education in recent years.
Here are some of our other recent achievements:
- Our gifted and talented students are selected to compete in Tournament of Minds and Maths Olympiads. These opportunities are given for students to showcase their particular strengths outside of the classroom environment.
- Our creative students submit entries to a number of different creative and practical arts competitions throughout the year.
- Our musical students take part in the CaSPA performance opportunities as well as our talented choir singing in Eisteddfod each year.
- We also have students each year represent Marion Catholic Primary School in regional and state levels in sports, including soccer, swimming and athletics.
