Oct. 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Since opening its doors in 1972, MacGregor Primary School has consistently been one of the highest performing schools in Queensland, and they fully intend to stay that way.

That’s why all 1,250 MacGregor students in Prep to Year 7 now have full access to LiteracyPlanet® – a digital learning program that’s proven to deliver unparalleled student engagement, while helping teachers manage and assess their students, deliver personalised learning and exceptional outcomes.  

Principal Mike Ennis was thrilled with 2012 NAPLAN results, once again placing MacGregor in the top performing schools across Australia in all facets of English Literacy as well as Numeracy. Mr Ennis said “Literacy results at MacGregor have been outstanding for many years, however, we were looking for 21st Century ways to ensure we maintain our high achievement. Our trial of LiteracyPlanet® was very successful, attracting positive feedback from students, staff and parents.”

With over 15,000 exercises and teacher-friendly tools to help assign, assess, report and diagnose difficulties for each and every student, LiteracyPlanet® is a winning proposition for students and teachers alike.

Mr Ennis said “Whatever resource we chose had to be aligned to the Australian National Curriculum, had to be teacher friendly, had to be engaging for students, allow them to interact at their ability level, and it had to have great product support. The online delivery of LiteracyPlanet® provides us further reason to continue to build the richness and pervasiveness of our digital learning spaces.”

Chris Roberts, CEO, couldn’t be more thrilled to have such a successful school on board, adding, “It’s important to us that schools know LiteracyPlanet® can help them secure strong results for their whole student population – whether there are special needs, an ESL component, or opportunities to give high achieving students a chance to really shine.”

Mr Ennis, agrees - “LiteracyPlanet® will help give our students an edge in literacy learning. We are on an exciting journey with our school community of academic excellence.”
