Brilliant Breslins

Dominic College Year 5 twins Harry and Oscar Breslin have topped the State in the recent International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) testing.

ICAS testing are independent skills-based assessments and are the most comprehensive generally available suite of academic assessments and school tests for primary and secondary school students. The tests cover disciplines in Digital Technologies, English, Maths, Science, Spelling and Writing.

Dominic College student, Harry Breslin was successful in attaining the highest score for Year 5 students in Tasmania for both Spelling and Writing. His brother, Oscar Breslin, received the highest score in English for Year 5 students in the State.

Over one million student entries are accepted from over 6,300 schools in Australia and New Zealand annually for the testing. Students from over another 20 countries including Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa and the USA participate in ICAS each year as well.

Students with the top score in each subject in each year level in each State are awarded a medal and a medal winner’s certificate.
