RPS ICAS Examination Results

2019 ICAS Examination Results

Congratulations to the following students who excelled in this year's ICAS Examinations. This is the first year that these exams have been done online so it was a new experience for them. The ICAS Writing examinations take longer to mark so I will publicise these results when they are available.

To access your child's results, go to https://orti.unswglobal.unsw.edu.au/ortiStudent and enter their TAP-ID and PIN.

Remuera Zone Speech Finals

Congratulations to Joshua Rowbotham (Year 6) who placed 3rd = in this year's Zone Speech Competition at St Kentigern Girls' School on 15 October. The calibre of speeches on the day was very high as each participant was the winner of his/her school speech competition.  As he did in our Senior School Speech Competition, Joshua delivered his speech with clarity, energy and wit, and we are very proud of his achievement. Well done Joshua!


Great Tennis Result

I am delighted to congratulate Sam Fussell, who recently competed in the Auckland Primary Schools Tennis Competition.

There were entries from all over Auckland, with some of Auckland's finest talent on display.  Sam is to be congratulated for making the final.  While it was a well fought final, unfortunately, Sam finished second, but we are so proud of his incredible achiievement.

Please join us in congratulating Sam.
