Sofia and Elizabeth ICAS Medal Winners

On Saturday the ICAS medal presentation ceremony was held at Auckland University.

Sancta Maria College was lucky enough to have two of our students in attendance; Sofia Olan (Year 7) and Elizabeth Leaning (Year 13).

2,103 students from New Zealand took part in the Year 7 ICAS writing assessment and only 2 gained the highest score and were presented with medals.

‘Sofia’s writing shows maturity far beyond her 12 years. She writes about sophisticated ideas with ease, with her wide range of vocabulary complementing her writing.’

This was Sofia’s second ICAS medal, winning a medal for spelling last year.
