OLMC has recently been identified as achieving a ‘high gain’ in the NAPLAN Numeracy results. Based on the tracking of student results from Years 7-9, 300 schools were identified nationally for achieving above average gains in either Reading, Writing or Numeracy. OLMC was the only Catholic secondary school in Victoria to achieve above average gains in Numeracy. This is a great achievement and reflects particularly the passion and hard work of our Maths staff. Well done staff and students.
This week we have extended a special welcome to the Year 7s and to staff and families new to the College. We have also enjoyed the buzz and energy of returning students. February is traditionally one of the busiest months in the College calendar and 2015 is no exception. Our hope is that all community members, new and old, will have many blessed moments in the weeks ahead. May we all experience healthy doses of delight, challenge, pride, achievement, encouragement and laughter, and may each and all of these experiences keep us refreshed and renewed.
