  • ‘Loved the concept”
  • “Refined”

English and Writing Competitions

UNSW ICAS English CompetitionsDear Parents

It is time for ICAS again! ICAS provides an opportunity for all students in Years 6 to 10 at Stromlo to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external testing situation. It provides teachers, parents and students with comprehensive reporting of results in the areas of English and Writing. The tests are an excellent preparation for national tests and the student report is useful for highlighting your child’s strengths and weaknesses against a national and international cohort.

All students receive a certificate and an individual student report indicating which questions they answered correctly and their score compared with the rest of the students tested. The certificate and individual student report are also suitable for your child to include in a portfolio.

Please return the ICAS Stromlo Permission Note with payment to the finance office ASAP, that would be wonderful!

Please do not hesitate to contact Dion Oxley or Rebecca Cusick for further information.

Southside Basketball Tournament

On the 13th of March our junior and senior boys basketball teams played in the Southside High Schools Basketball Tournament. There was a lot of players vying for positions on this years teams. The chosen teams did not disappoint the selectors.

The senior boys won physical contests against Telopea 22 – 16 and Wanniassa 49 – 3. They had close games against one of the finalists Lanyon High 15 – 17; Lanyon went onto play the winners of the senior boys basketball Calwell High School.

The junior boys won against Wanniassa 10 – 3, Lanyon 21 – 7 and Calwell 17 – 14. Their two losses were close games against Deakin 11 – 17 and Telopea 15 – 22.

Both teams were a credit to Stromlo High school and their families with their maturity and a commitment to do their best for Stromlo High.

On the 27th of March the girls teams had their chance to compete, and they did not disappoint in their efforts. Both the junior and senior girls teams won their first three games with both teams narrowly missing out getting into the finals. Both teams came third in their respective competitions.

The coaching and managing staff/students would like to congratulate the players on their conduct and their committed efforts.
