2017 Computational and Algorithmic Thinking Competition

The results of the 2017 Computational and Algorithmic Thinking Competition were released recently. This competition was conducted on March 21 with the aim of identifying students who have a talent for designing and writing computer programs. Each student sat a one hour paper with 15 questions requiring logic and problem solving skills.

Of the 35 entrants, 25 students were awarded credits or better. These students were:

Upper Primary division (Years 5 & 6)

  • Jessica Fettell – Distinction
  • Emmy Horman – Distinction
  • Ananya Khatry – Distinction
  • Max Lalor – Distinction
  • Rachel Adam – Credit
  • Zara Bicknell – Credit
  • Chloe Chiu – Credit
  • Melody Ch’ng – Credit
  • Genevieve Gough – Credit
  • Saskia Jackson Smith – Credit
  • Ella Jones – Credit

It was again pleasing this year to see the levels of participation and achievements in the Upper Primary division.

This was the second year that Tintern entered students in the Upper Primary division and more than two thirds of those who entered achieved a Credit or better. Particularly noteworthy was the achievement of Max Lalor in Year 6 who achieved the top score across all year levels with a percentile rank of 95.

These are excellent achievements and all students who entered this challenging competition are to be congratulated on their efforts. Students who are interested in learning more about computer programming are encouraged to enter the NCSS Programming Challenge which will be advertised in Term 3.
