Recently, Mr Colin Becker’s Year 5 and 6 Advanced Core Maths students completed the Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) competition some exceptional results.

The Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) is a one-hour problem solving competition designed to encourage student curiosity and promote multiple ways of thinking. Fostering lateral thinking and pragmatic problem solving, the competition helps to unearth future talent in computer programming— think Google, Facebook, Twitter – all designed by computer programmers. It encourages students to solve real world problems by using a variety of skills.

The top 3 students in Year 5 and Year 6 were :

In Year 6

Third place – Jack Zhang
Second place – Luca Falivene
First place – Ross Psaromatis

In Year 5

Third place – Ryan Weinert
Second place – Ned manifold

Congratulations to all boys who participated, and particularly to Caleb Scott (Year 5) who was awarded Best in School.
