ICAS Digital Technologies Competition

In Term 3, students in Yrs. 7-10 had the opportunity to participate in the annual ICAS (International Competitions and Assessment for Schools) Digital Technologies Competition for 2020 albeit in slightly different circumstances. Coordinated by Dr Stephen Goodall (Science Enrichment), the ICAS Digital Technologies competition assesses skills and knowledge in the areas of databases, graphics, multimedia, operating systems & computer hardware and programming. Results are now available and I am pleased to announce some fantastic performances. Of particular note was the outstanding performance of Dathen Seneviratne of Year 8.
