All students in Years 3-6 at South Coogee Public School have the opportunity to sit the ICAS (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools) tests. These tests are conducted by Educational Assessment Australia, part of UNSW Global Pty Limited. UNSW Global is a not-for-profit provider of education, training and consulting services and a wholly owned enterprise of the University of New South Wales. Students from over 20 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, Pacific and the USA participate in ICAS each year.

Schools and students receive comprehensive hard copy and online reports on their performance in each subject. Students also receive a certificate to recognise their achievement.

Students are able to sit the ICAS competition in the following areas:

  • Digital technologies
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Spelling
  • Writing

All tests are held before school to avoid disruption to normal school activities.
