Trinity Anglican School (TAS) year 4 student Ben Limpus (9 years) topped Queensland for mathematics after competing in the prestigious International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS).
“What awards like this highlight is the dedication of our teachers in nurturing and bringing out the very best in students – irrespective of their academic ability. This is a quality that makes TAS truly special,” Mrs Kershaw said.
According to TAS Principal Paul Sjogren ICAS is an independent, skills-based assessment program providing valuable insights into the academic attainment and performance of independent schools against national curriculum benchmarks.
“This result is a wonderful testament to our rigorous learning program and to the teaching staff at TAS Kewarra Beach and is an outstanding and well-deserved outcome for Ben.
