Reminder - Early Close at 2pm this Thursday
Plus Lunchonline changes and ICAS 2020
 

Reminder 2pm closing on Thursday 23 July:
Just a quick reminder that school closes at 2pm on Thursday 23 July so that we can prepare for our Open Night.

Lunchonline:
Lunchonline have informed us that Subway will no longer be supplying school lunches on Wednesdays.  They are looking at other options but in the meantime Sushi on Thursdays and Hell Pizza on Fridays are the options.

ICAS:
We will be again offering our students the opportunity to participate in the ICAS Assessments this year. ICAS is developed by UNSW Global, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UNSW Sydney, with over 35 years’ experience in educational assessments.

ICAS is designed to target students’ higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills in English, Mathematics, Science, Writing (not being offered this year), Spelling and Digital Technologies.

Each assessment celebrates students’ accomplishments by providing opportunities for recognition. Every student will receive a printed certificate and an online result report. Top performers will be eligible for medals and are invited to attend special award ceremonies to have their academic excellence publicly recognised.

The assessments are suitable for students wishing to extend themselves academically and take up the personal challenge of competing in an international assessment. Your child will be presented with high-quality, expert-developed questions, allowing them to apply their learning without the need for prior study or revision.

ICAS Assessments are now online, a move that reflects a sector-wide transition to online assessments. This allows greater accessibility for students and faster delivery of results.

The cost for each of the assessments is $17.80 (including GST).

The tests available are:

Digital Technologies (Computers) - entry closes Monday 10 August 9am; sitting date Monday 24 August

Science - entry closes Monday 3 August 9am; sitting date Monday 17 August

Spelling - entry closes Monday 17 August 9am; sitting date Monday 31 August

English - entry closes Monday 10 August 9am; sitting date Monday 24 August

Mathematics - entry closes Monday 17 August 9am; sitting date Monday 31 August

If you would like your child to take part in any of the ICAS assessments a registration form is available at the school office. Alternatively for an electronic copy please email Matt  mattb@dni.school.nz
