This year (2007), Al-Hidayah students participated in the International Science and Mathematics Competitions and Assessments for Schools, an initiative of the Educational Testing Centre of the University of New South Wales.
The Science Assessment included tasks which assessed students' skills in observing and measuring, reading and interpreting information, predicting, drawing conclusions, understanding experimental design and higher order skills, such as reasoning and problem solving.

"One of the special benefits of the Competition is that schools and students receive detailed diagnostic information about their overall performance. The Assessment allows students to monitor their progress from year to year and identify their personal strengths and weaknesses."
Further information about successful students can be obtained directly from the school.
