Academic Excellence – English and Mathematics

ICAS English Competition Results 2019

Late in Term 3, a number of keen and motivated Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 English students competed in The International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) English Competition. The competition was designed to challenge and extend students in key areas of reading, sentence structure and vocabulary.

I am pleased to announce that the results for this competition were excellent across all year levels. Results are presented below, of particular note was Anthony Seneviratne who received Distinction; a commendable effort.

I would like to thank Mr Russell Melenhorst for his organization and coordination of this initiative and Mrs Fiona Lennon for her support of the Enrichment Program more broadly. Well done boys! Certificates will be presented to those below shortly.

  • Anthony Seneviratne – Distinction
  • Lukas Mallios – Credit
  • Ryan Nguyen – Credit
  • Evan Chee – Credit
  • Max Young – Credit
  • James Palumbo – Merit


ICAS Mathematics Competition

Again in Term 3, we had over 50 entrants from Yrs 7-12 compete in the annual ICAS Mathematics Competition. The competition assesses students’ skills and knowledge across five strands and includes Algebra and Patterns, Chance and Data, Measures and Units, Number and Arithmetic & Space and Geometry. Students from differing year levels completed papers appropriate for their year levels under exams conditions in Study Centre (the undercroft). Congratulations to all students involved. Special thanks to Mrs Liz Moloney (Maths Enrichment) for organising and coordinating this enrichment initiative and Ms. Sam Riddle for her support of the Enrichment Program more broadly.
