ICAS Testing

These voluntary tests are only for children who are in Years  4 - 6. They are totally optional and not compulsory.

The tests are Australian based and are great test practice for our children.They reference the Australian Curriculum . The costs have gone up hugely this year which will put people off but we still offer the opportunity.


Children in Year 4 - 6 can sit the tests in the following subjects.


Maths: Wednesday 18th September

English: Tuesday 17th September

Science: Wednesday 4th September


They do not directly reflect the NZ Curriculum but are great for practising exam technique.

The cost for each test is $15 ( the cost have gone up from $10.50 to $15 this year) and this can be paid via our school website www.ponsprim.school.nz   (blue school payment button on the right hand side of the homepage) or at the school office.


Registration and payment for these tests must be made by the end of the term April 12th 2019 through the website or please come to the office to register and pay for your child. 
 (no late entries can accepted)
