The results of the 2018 Computational and Algorithmic Thinking Competition were released recently. This competition was conducted on March 27 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.
The students who were awarded credits or better were:
Junior division (Years 7 & 8)
• Abigail Chai – Distinction
• Olivia Dowling – Distinction
• Zoe Chen – Credit
Intermediate division (Years 9 & 10)
• Alexander Higgins – Credit
Senior division (Years 11 & 12)
• Gavin Choong – Credit
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 at the start of Term 3.
