The Heights SchoolNews & Events

Congratulations to Catherine Bourn, students and staff involved in this year’s Art Exhibition Competition. After eleven years of running this annual event, this year, our exhibition was included in the SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival. On Tuesday evening (3rd September), a small number of students and staff attended the special school’s presentation ceremony at the Radford Auditorium, Art Gallery of SA. We were over the moon to be announced as a winner in the Credit Union SA School Awards – for South Australian Primary Schools and Secondary Schools. The prize includes $2,500 for the Art Department to use for equipment and resources. Well done all!

ICAS Registration

The Heights SchoolNews & Events

We are delighted to inform you that The Heights School will be participating in the world-renowned ICAS Assessments again this year. ICAS is developed by UNSW Global, a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of New South Wales, with over 35 years’ experience in educational assessments.

ICAS is designed to target students’ higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills in English, Mathematics, Science, Writing, Spelling and Digital Technologies.

Each assessment celebrates students’ accomplishments by providing opportunities for recognition. Every student will receive a certificate and an online result report. Top performers will be eligible for medals and are invited to attend special award ceremonies to have their academic excellence publicly recognised.

We encourage you to consider entering your child into ICAS this year. The assessments are suitable for students wishing to extend themselves academically and take up the personal challenge of competing in an international assessment. Your child will be presented with high-quality, expert-developed questions, allowing them to apply their learning without the need for prior study or revision.
