Local students shine on the global stage
THE academic prowess of students from Trinity Anglican School (TAS) has been felt across the globe with outstanding performances in the inaugural Global Academic Challenge.
At the top of the TAS honour role is Year 3 student Celia Pramana, who, despite moving up a grade and competing against the world’s best Year 4 students, succeeded in winning the ultimate mathematics prize and a High Distinction for reading.
Available for school students in Years 4 and 6 across mathematics, reading and science disciplines, the Global Academic Challenge is a new academic competition from the Australian Council for Educational Research.
According to the Head of TAS White Rock Primary, Peter Gazzola, the Global Academic Challenge is an awards program based on the International Schools’ Assessment used in schools worldwide since 2002.
“TAS was pleased to participate in this inaugural challenge because it is a wonderful opportunity for high-achieving students to test their knowledge and skills that stretch them beyond the curriculum,” Mr Gazzola said.
“I would like to congratulate and thank all our students whose diligence and effort is a shining example of the TAS spirit.
“Participation is an outstanding achievement and a credit to the students, teachers, and school community.”
Year 3 student Celia Pramana received a High Distinction and was among the top 10% of participants competing globally in the reading category for Year 4 students.
Celia also received a Personalised Medallion in the mathematics category for achieving the top result for the Year globally.
Other notable achievements:
• Isabel Raubenheimer (Year 6) received a High Distinction in the reading category, also placing her in the top 10% of participants globally.
• Treyton Muirhead (Year 6) received a High Distinction with Honours in the reading category, placing him in the top 2% of participants globally
