Each year the University of NSW offers external assessments across a range of subjects. These ICAS (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools) exams provide students with the opportunity to compare their skills with other students across the country and internationally. In 2017, four St Columba students achieved exceptional results.
Congratulations to Aarohi Deshmukh – Writing (Year 6), Finn Vicars – Digital Technology, Science and Writing (Year 3), Rikin Gowda – English (Year 3) and Lachlan Hodge – Mathematics (Year 3) on receiving ‘High Distinctions’ in their ICAS Examinations. These results place each student in the top 1% of all Australian students who completed the assessments.
