At a special ceremony held on Saturday afternoon at the University of Auckland Business Centre, four Saint Kentigern students were awarded an ICAS Medal for achieving the top score in the country for their year group in the New Zealand and Pacific International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS). 

ICAS, commonly referred to as the University of New South Wales competitions, is conducted annually in Australia and over 20 countries globally. These are independent skills-based assessments and school tests for primary and secondary school students in Computer Skills, English, Maths, Science, Spelling and Writing. Earlier in the year, a large number of our students from each of our schools were entered in ICAS in a range of subjects. 

From the College, Alissa Huang received a medal for Year 8 Writing, Thomas Cranefield for Year 9 Science and Andrew Chen for Year 12 Science. Patrick Healy from the Boys’ School was also a medal recipient having scored the top mark in Year 7 for Digital Technologies. 

This year there were over 980,000 entries in the ICAS exams, but only 100 students from New Zealand and the Pacific Region were awarded medals for their outstanding achievement. Congratulations to all of these high achievers!
