This year, St Paul’s had 51 students enter the ICAS Science competition, which is a one-hour multi-choice examination requiring students to use their science knowledge, reasoning and interpreting skills to determine the answers to 45 resourced based questions.
Our students competed across all Year levels (i.e. 9-13), against over 10,000 students in New Zealand and the Pacific and achieved above the national average in all Year levels.
Over the past years, St Paul’s students have achieved outstanding success. Our past Collegians have achieved the honour of top in the country and received Gold medals on the following occasions: in 2010 Chang Zhai (Year 12); 2011 Conor Robson (Year 12) and Chang Zhai (Year 13); and in 2013, Mark Davis (Year 13).
