Performance & Achievements


Each year, students from Grade 3 and Grade 5 at Cooroy State School complete the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN).  The tests are held during May, with results returned to schools and parents in September.

Consistently over the last few years, Cooroy State School has shown an upward trend across all year levels in all key learning areas: 

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Spelling
  • Grammar and punctuation
  • Numeracy (calculator and non-calculator)
The data returned to Cooroy State School each year is analysed by a team of staff, looking at the strength and challenge areas for each year level. Whole school and year level plans and processes are then designed to further strengthen these areas.
Further information about NAPLAN can be accessed from the NAP website.


Throughout the months of May to August, students are invited to sit the University of New South Wales International Competition and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) in the following subjects:

  • Computer skills
  • Science
  • Spelling
  • Writing
  • English
  • Mathematicsathematics

A selection of students are nominated to participate in the above tests. These students are chosen based upon multiple data sets held by the school.

Parents are also welcome to nominate and pay for their child to participate.
The tests are complete here at school, with student answer sheets being sent to the University for marking. Individual student results and certificates are then returned to the school and presented on parades. Certificates are awarded based upon the following results:
  • High distinction – top 1% of all students of the same age group
  • Distinction – top 10% of all students of the same age group
  • Credit – top 25% of all students of the same age group
  • Participation – all remaining students
