ICAS Assessments

Kia ora Parents and Caregivers

Last year we offered children the opportunity to take part in the Kiwi Competitions. Following the feedback we received, we have decided to return to offering the ICAS assessments.

ICAS is an independent, skills-based assessment program which recognises and rewards student achievement. ICAS is unique, being the most comprehensive generally available suite of academic assessments for primary and secondary school students.

Entries are administered by the school. For further information, please consult the ICAS website - https://www.eaa.unsw.edu.au/icas/about. Each participant will receive a certificate and a detailed report of there performance.

The assessments will be administered on the following dates:

Official Sitting Date
29 May 2018
31 July 2018
14 August 2018

Each assessment costs $9.50 to enter. Payment for these competition fees will need to be paid in full by Friday 11 May 2018. You can pay with eftpos at the school office or online school's bank account (ASB 12-3148-0131641-000) with the reference ‘ICAS’ and child’s name as the code. Please note that payment for the Science assessment is due on Monday 30 April - my apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
