Each year students across Years 3-5 are offered the opportunity to undertake UNSW Global assessments (ICAS and Reach) through the University of New South Wales online educational assessment program for students across Australia and internationally. Tests are available in English, Writing, Spelling, Mathematics, Science and Digital Technologies and these provide another avenue for interested learners to build their experience in working under test conditions as well as challenging themselves in their learning.

This year 30 Junior School students opted in to one or more papers through UNSW Global and all are commended for their efforts. Special congratulations go to Isaac Dhanaraj (Year 4) who was awarded a medal as the highest-scoring Tasmanian Year 4 student on the ICAS Writing test.

Information about the 2020 program can be found online and will also be available to families early in Term 1.
