Congratulations to students who have completed the University of New South Wales Global ICAS tests. ICAS is an independent, skills-based assessment program for primary and secondary school students. The assessments comprise tests in Digital Technologies, English, Maths, Science, Spelling and Writing. Over one million student entries are accepted from over 6,300 schools in Australia and New Zealand annually. In addition, students from over 20 countries including Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa and the USA participate in ICAS each year. Results for Science and Digital Technologies were received this week and I congratulate the following students who gained Distinction and High Distinction awards; an excellent achievement in a very challenging test. Well done.

Student achievements

Darcy Wade

Darcy Wade has returned from the USA after representing Australia in Tetrathlon. He placed 6th individually in the Senior Boys International Tetrathlon and the Australian team placed 4th. He performed in hot humid conditions with two excellent rides on a borrowed horse with two clear showjumping rounds, taking eight seconds off his personal best time in the swim, shooting well with a borrowed air pellet pistol before a solid performance in the three kilometre run on a challenging and hilly course. Congratulations Darcy.
