St Margaret Mary’s Catholic Primary School Randwick North celebrates and affirms its students in a wide range of curriculum areas. Our teachers know their students and work with them to help them realise their potential as learners. Our focus on authentic learning and assessment ensures that we challenge our students to grow in their learning and achieve their personal best.
At St Margaret Mary’s, assessment is seen as a critical aspect of learning and a key tool in challenging students and measuring their success. We have a variety of assessment tools such as NAPLAN, Progressive Achievement Tests (PAT), the Religious Education Test and ICAS assessments – along with classroom-based assessments. We have been able to demonstrate strong growth, particularly in Reading and Mathematics in recent years.
Here are some of our other recent achievements.
