NCSS Challenge

The National Computer Science School Challenge is an online programming competition run by the University of Sydney. The Challenge lasted for five weeks and students competed in one of four streams (Newbies, Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced) learning the Python programming language.

This year twenty one students from Years 5 to 10 received participation certificates. In Year 6, Madeline Hupfeld achieved a Merit certificate in the Beginners competition. Particularly notable were three students who each achieved perfect scores in their respective competitions. They were:

  • Matthew Cobb                Year 7                Newbies
  • Alex Higgins                       Year 7               Beginners
  • Annabelle McKenzie     Year 10            Intermediate

These three students are all to be highly commended for their flawless performances in solving highly challenging programming problems. Congratulations to all students who participated in the NCSS Challenge this year.
