ICAS 2018

CLOSES FRIDAY 16 FEBRUARY - NO FORMS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THIS DATE.

The University of NSW (UNSW) conducts international tests in Science, Digital Technologies, Mathematics, Writing, Spelling and English each year; these are known as the “International Competitions and Assessments for Schools” (ICAS).
ICAS provides extensive independent evaluations of students’ skills, knowledge and understandings in the core learning areas.  These skills and understandings are important indicators of success in school and beyond.  The school particularly encourages children to participate in the Science, English and Maths competitions.  If you would like your child to take part in all or any of the ICAS tests this year, please complete the 2018 ICAS Registration Letter to Parents Years 2 to 6 letter and return the form to the office with the test/s you wish your child to sit.

ONE ENTRY FORM FOR EACH STUDENT. RETURN TO OFFICE BY FRIDAY 16 FEBRUARY

DO NOT INCLUDE PAYMENT WITH THE LETTER. AN INVOICE WILL BE SENT HOME.

BOOK FAIR 2018

Monday 26 February –Thursday March from 8.15am – 8.45am and 3pm-4pm in the Hall.

You are invited to our Paws for Books Book Fair.

Every purchase you make earns rewards for our school.

Research shows that parental involvement at home, independent reading at school and the power of book choice all help make frequent readers. A Scholastic Book Fair is the perfect place for your child to discover new books and ignite their love for reading.

As well as making your own purchases, this year parents are welcome to purchase and donate a book to the school library. To acknowledge this a donation sticker will be attached to the book.
Enjoy the Fair.
