St Bede’s will once again this year enter students in the following competitions:
ICAS (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools)- which cover 6 subjects- Writing, Digital Technology, Science, Spelling, English and Maths.
And the AMC (Australian Mathematics Competition).
As entries over the past 2 years were down when entries went out for families to complete- I would like to again offer to do the entries for you at school. For this to work I require all competitions to have the same closing date for entries and the school will strictly not accept any late entries.
Please see below a table outlining each assessment, which year levels can participate and the cost for each competition.
The Competitions basically are spread out across the month of August.
If you would like for your child to participate please fill in the table below by ticking the relevant boxes, putting this form in an envelope (with the correct amount of money) and return to the school office by NO LATER THAN Wednesday the 13th of July (the first Wednesday in Term 3).
Please label the envelope with:
ACADEMIC COMPETITION ENTRY
Your child’s name
What year level they are in.
A separate envelope for each child in the family is appreciated.
