The results are in after students at the Central West Leadership Academy undertook the challenge of ICAS testing.
Three students had repeat successes, Vishaka Rupasinghe received two distinctions and one high distinction; Finn Randell achieved four of five distinctions and Noah Randell received distinctions in all five areas of the competition testing.
The ICAS test is the International Competition and Assessments for Schools. There are five categories in which the students were able to compete this year: digital technology, english, spelling, science, and mathematics.
Eight Academy students received a distinction in at least one area where their results were in the top 10 percentile nationwide.
"To see so many of our students achieve so well across subjects in ICAS shows that our students are receiving excellent learning experiences and their achievements put them among the brightest in the country," Principal Mandi Randell said.
According to UNSW, the ICAS Assessments are designed to "recognise academic excellence, students are assessed on their ability to apply classroom learning to new contexts using higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills."
The Central West Leadership Academy Enrolments for Year 3-9 for 2021 are now open.
