Learning and Achievement

Learning and Achievement

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 St Martha’s Catholic Primary School Strathfield, we provide students with rich learning experiences to ensure all students are challenged. Staff know their students well and are able to maximise learning opportunities to enable growth.

St Martha’s has continued to shine in all areas of growth, which was evident in our NAPLAN results particularly in Writing and Mathematics. Assessment is a critical aspect of learning at St Martha’s: it is a key tool in challenging students and measuring their success. Some of the assessments are: NAPLAN, ICAS, PAT (Progressive Achievement Assessment), Year 6 Religious Education Test, and classroom based assessment including clinical interviews, running records and writing analysis.

Here are some of our other recent achievements.

  • Our gifted and talented students are selected to compete in Maths Olympiads and work with a scientist.
  • Students have been involved in coding and robotics.

Students compete in many sporting events, with some students winning national awards.
