TWO CVC MEDALISTS IN ICAS WRITING COMPETITION
It’s with great pleasure we announce our complete school performance in the recent International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) in Writing, in which Year 7-10 students within our A+ Academic Extension group, and high achieving Year 11 & 12 students participated in.
ICAS is the most comprehensive educational assessment program available for schools. Every year thousands of schools participate in ICAS in over 20 countries, giving an international benchmark that can be relied upon. ICAS is developed by UNSW Global Pty Limited and has had more than 8.9 million students participate since 2002.
We’ve reached a new record high with academic excellence at our college this year with two medalists.
Congratulations to Nouvelle Tamilalagan who achieved in the top 1% of Year 8 participants in Australia, and Soon Ping Teh, who achieved in the top 2% of Yr12 participants. Nouvelle and Soon Ping will receive their medals in a special award ceremony at Government House next term. Many thanks to their English teachers throughout their schooling at CVC who have supported the success of these students.
