A+ for NAPLAN By Callum Ludwig Primary schools in the Yarra Ranges have excelled in 2021’s NAPLAN, with Gladesville Primary School and Coldstream Primary School celebrating their results. Grade three and fives of Coldstream PS in 2021 had the highest percentage of aboveaverage scores in reading, with 94 per cent of grade three and 100 per cent of fives achieving the feat, while Gladesville PS had 89 percent of its students above-average in numeracy - also the best in the state. Coldstream PS Principal Phillippa Adgemis and Gladesville PS Principal Nicki wood both said they are thrilled with such a great result.

“We are absolutely delighted to be one of the top schools in the state, particularly as a smaller state school,” said Ms Wood “This really lets the kids know that if you work and focus hard enough, you can achieve anything you want. For me it’s not only a celebration of state education but a celebration of the fact that if you put in and give kids the good basics, they’ve got the world open to them,” said Ms Adgemis Both schools are a part of a Small Schools Alliance in the local area, including Pembroke PS, Lilydale PS, Yarra Glen PS and Wandin Yallock PS.
