The school participates in the ICAS competitions administered by the University of New South Wales each year. This is an opportunity for pupils to take part in international assessment tasks and to compare their abilities with other children throughout New Zealand as well as internationally. The competitions that we participate in are:
Digital Tech: Tuesday 8th May CLOSED for 2018 Science: Tuesday 29th May CLOSED for 2018 Writing: Tuesday 12th June CLOSED for 2018 Spelling: Thursday 14th June CLOSED for 2018 English: Monday 30th July CLOSED for 2018 Mathematics: Tuesday 14th August CLOSED for 2018
All children are welcome to take part in these competitions but we particularly encourage pupils with high ability in these areas to test their ability against other children.
To make the administration of the competition easier we are asking that pupils register for all the competitions that they wish to take part in at the same time. If your child wishes to participate in any, or all, of the competitions please make payments through our Kindo payment system by Thursday 15th March 2018.
Please note that the reason that the Writing test is more expensive, is that the other papers are computer marked but the Writing needs to be individually marked by hand.
