The UNSW International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) for students from Year 3 to Year 6 will be offered at BWPS again this year.
Students can enroll to participate in a range of ICAS competitions including: Computer Skills, Writing, Spelling, English and mathematics.
All students who participate receive a certificate and an individual student report indicating which questions they answered correctly and their score compared with the rest of the students tested. The certificate and individual student report are also suitable for your child to include in a portfolio.
ICAS competitions are one of the many extra-curricula programs we run here at BWPS and it is important to remember that they are competitions, not assessments, and your child does not have to participate.
Please note that these exams are quite difficult and will not be suitable for all students.
If you would like your child to participate in the competitions, you can find the participant application over on the Notes to Parents page of our school website. Just print, complete and send in to the school office with the appropriate payment for your selected ICAS competitions before the 22nd of March 2017. .
