This year students in Years 7-10 had the opportunity to participate in the annual ICAS Science Competition for 2023. The participation in the competition was high. Organised and coordinated by Dr Stephen Goodall (Science Enrichment), the ICAS Science competition is skill-based and includes subject contexts of Earth and Beyond, Energy and Change, Life and Living, Natural and Processed Materials and assesses skills in interpreting data, applying data and higher order skills.
I am pleased to announce that the results for this competition were commendable with several students receiving a credit or above. Of note was Dathen Seneviratne who received a High Distinction for his efforts. A summary of results is presented below. Well done boys!
