Students Conquer Computer Olympiad

Pinelands High School is proud of the excellent performances of the students who took part in the annual Computer Olympiad. The Computer Olympiad is the South African version of the Bebras Contest which attracts more than a million participants from across the world. The contest requires the skills of computational thinking, the same used for Mathematics, Science, IT and CAT. These problem solving techniques are used by Software Engineers to write programs and apps.

Pinelands High School had seven students placed in the top achievers; four Gold (better than 93% of all participants countrywide) and three Silver (better than 79% of all participants countrywide) winners.
