There is an opportunity for students in Years 2 – 6 to participate in the ICAS (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools) program.
For information to assist you in determining if individual assessments are ‘right’ for your child or children, please refer to the ICAS website https://www.eaa.unsw.edu.au/icas/about
You might also find it helpful to contact your child’s teacher for further advice regarding which assessment(s) might best suit your child.
Please find on the page following, the costs of, and dates for, each assessment. If you would like your child to be involved in any or all of the assessments, please complete the following form. Your school account will be billed accordingly.
We have negotiated to administer the test on mornings which do not clash with other school activities. To avoid your child missing the assessment, please take note of the day, date and time of each particular ICAS test. We need to pay for the assessments ‘up front’ and will therefore not be in a position to provide refunds.
Please return the attached ICAS Nomination form to the ICAS drawer in the front office by Friday 10 April 2018 and retain this letter as a record of which assessments you have nominated your child for.
