International Competitions and Assessments (ICAS)
ICAS are independent skills-based assessments with a competition element. They are developed annually for primary and secondary school students in the subject areas of Computer Skills, English, Mathematics, Science, Spelling and Writing. Over one million student entries are accepted from over 6,300 schools in Australia and New Zealand annually.
At Cloncurry State School P–12, our Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) sponsors the entry costs of student to compete in the core areas of English, Science and Mathematics. Our students also compete in the Computer Skills, Spelling and Writing competitions, however, the entry cost is covered by parents in these areas.
Our students' record of achievement in these competitions is excellent with many distinctions and several high distinctions being achieved by students in all subject areas. When a student achieves a Distinction it places them in the top 2% of students in Queensland. A student who achieves a High Distinction is placed in the top 1% of students in Queensland.
