News from the ICT department

Last academic year we have launched many good initiatives within the department and this year we are expanding them even further. After the introduction of the programming club, computer science units in the KS3 curriculum and the Code Camp, this year we launched the pilot of the iGCSE in Computer science during Enrichment time, introduced programming across all the KS3 and have participated in 2 competitions with a very pleasing results and success. And this is just what we have managed up until January!

Canadian Computing Competition
On the 18th February 2016, six students: Joshua Silverberg, Martin Vrana, Peter Novak, Arkadiy Deliev, Wang Yu and Matej Novak will participate in a Canadian Computing Competition run by the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing at University of Waterloo in Canada. The CEMC has become Canada's largest and most recognized outreach organization for promoting and creating activities and materials in mathematics and computer science. The CEMC is housed within the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo. It was founded in 1995 with origins dating back to the 1960s.

The Canadian Computing Competition (CCC) is a fun challenge for secondary school students with an interest in programming. It is an opportunity for students to test their ability in designing, understanding and implementing algorithms. The students will have three hours to solve five complex programming issues and submit them.
Let’s cross our fingers for all these gentlemen and wish them all the best. It will not only be a competition for them, but also a good experience and a valuable lesson they can learn for their iGCSE programming paper.

HTML and CSS competition
There are also two Year 8 students, Chiann-Yu Chen and Filip Baranec, who will compete with other students worldwide in the field of web design. Both Year 8 students will participate in a 5-week long challenge, solving multiple problems each week and collecting points for each correctly submitted task. This competition is run by Groklearing.
Groklearning is a team of educators and software engineers from Australia who want to make coding fun for everyone. They are passionate about teaching the next generation the skills they need to become the creators of tomorrow. They have decades of experience teaching computing to university students, high school students, teachers and professionals.
You can find more about them here: https://groklearning.com/about/
We wish Chiann-Yu Chen and Filip Baranec all the best in their effort and lots of success in this challenge.
Once the results are available, we will inform you about them.

With kind regards, Beata Romhanyi, ICT teacher
