RECEPTION MID-YEAR INTAKE
A big warm welcome to our new Reception students who started this week. Check out what they want to be when they grow up!
PRIMARY BUILD UPDATE
The new Stage 1 Early Primary and Innovation Centre is looking magnificent! The layout is taking shape, and the spaces have been fitted out with walls, ceilings, windows, power/data, and floor coverings. The joinery is being installed, and it is now possible to grasp how amazing these spaces will be once completed! Stay tuned for further updates as we approach the finish line for Term 4!
International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) takes place each year throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific regions, and are an initiative of Educational Assessment Australia of the University of New South Wales.
The experience provides an opportunity for students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external assessment situation.
St Michael’s College offers all students in Years 4 and 6 the opportunity to participate in the following 2020 International Competitions and Assessments for Schools.
Both Year 4 and 6 students have been entered the Science, Writing, and Mathematics Competitions on the dates listed below:
|Science||Wednesday 19 August|
|Mathematics||Wednesday 2 September|
The competitions provide the opportunity for students to challenge their own learning in a range of skills required in each subject. It also recognises and rewards all students for their efforts through a certificate and an individual results letter. This will indicate which questions they answered correctly, as well as the average mark for their state. Student achievement will be recognised at assemblies and in The Star.
We recommend that these competitions are particularly beneficial for students and future learning analytics within the school, therefore the cost for each competition will be covered by the College.
Note: Parents of our Year 4 and 6 students received a more detailed letter regarding this year’s ICAS competitions on Wednesday, 22 July 2020.
Please contact the Primary Campus if your child is in Year 4 and/or 6, and you did not receive this letter.
