Two College Students Awarded ICAS Medals

November 18, 2019 at 3:13 PM

Two Year 7 College students, James Carter and Alan Chen were both thrilled to find out that they will be awarded ICAS medals at a special ceremony held at The University of Auckland in December, for achieving the top score in the country for their year group in spelling at 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 a range of subjects including Computer Skills, English, Maths, Science, Spelling and Writing.

Earlier in the year, a number of our students from each of our Saint Kentigern schools were entered in ICAS in a range of subjects with many gaining Distinction and High Distinction. Almost 100,000 students sit these tests world-wide, so it is an amazing achievement to be awarded national medals for top marks in the country!

Congratulations to James and Alan on their outstanding academic success!
