The English faculty encourages all students to participate in the
International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS).
ICAS provides an opportunity for students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external assessment situation. It provides schools and teachers with comprehensive reporting of results and provides parents with information regarding their child's performance. All students receive a certificate and an individual student record indicating which questions they answered correctly, and an average mark for the state.
The English faculty provides extra reading lists for all year levels to help with their learning. Download information for:
