Dear Parents/Caregivers,

This year the University of New South Wales will once again be running the ICAS Testing Program. 

ICAS testing will be taking place this term and as with last year, testing will be undertaken online.

Immanuel Lutheran School Gawler already conducts comprehensive standardised testing and the purpose of ICAS is not to have students take part in additional diagnostic testing.  Participation in ICAS testing is voluntary and the testing provides an opportunity for students to take on a challenge in the various curriculum areas covered by ICAS.  We would encourage students who excel in these curriculum areas to take on this challenge.     The University of New South Wales awards certificates to recognise student participation and achievement in ICAS testing.

Dates and fees for ICAS testing are as follows:
