Boys code in bright futures
ROSSMOYNE resident James Lund has been ranked equal first in an Australia-wide computer coding competition, the National Computer Science School challenge.
James (Year 9) and fellow All Saints’ College student Shevanka Dias Abeyagunawardene (Year 10) achieved ‘Perfection’ status, or equal first, in the intermediate category, while Shevanka and Aidan Smith (Year 10), also from Rossmoyne, achieved ‘High Distinctions’ in the Advanced category.
All Saints’ years 9 and 10 students also achieved five ‘Perfections’ and three ‘High Distinctions’ in the beginner’s category.
“We continue to look for futurefocused opportunities to enable All Saints’ students to apply themselves and we are delighted at their enthusiasm to take up these challenges,” All Saints head of design and technology Peter Harper said.
“Coding and programming are an increasingly important part of a required future skill.”
