For many years, our school has offered University of New South Wales ICAS testing to students on an opt-in/user pays basis. Parents who wished their children to participate paid the required fee and the children sat for English Mathematics and Science tests. These tests were set and marked external to the school and students received a certificate to encourage and reward them for their efforts.
Due to increasing costs and a difficult schedule for administering these tests, we have decided to trial a different form of testing that is also offered by the University of New South Wales (REACH ASSESSMENTS), which is cheaper and has a more convenient schedule than the ICAS assessments.
REACH assessments are designed for students in Year 2 - 12. Our school will offer the testing from Year 3. The tests are tailored to current international curricula and use a broad range of methods. REACH provides an objective external benchmark of student progress. Results are delivered via an online reporting system.
To enrol your child in Reach Assessments for 2019, please complete the registration form overleaf and return it, with your entry fees, to the school no later than Tuesday 02 April 2019.
PLEASE NOTE NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
