Last month, Trinity entered 22 computer science classes (a total of 256 participants) into the High School category of the Codementum International Coding Competition 2022. We are delighted to announce that one of our Trinity classes placed second globally, an exceptional achievement in this international competition.
As part of the competition, students had to work through a series of fun and educational coding activities with the aim of scoring 60 points in the fastest possible time. What makes this competition special is that everyone in the class had to work together as a team. Their success required a combined shared effort as well as individual coding skills and determination to beat the clock.
The winning class (5bnrm2-Co1) was represented by Fifth Year students Zeeshan Satheesan, Lucas Wan, Shayaan Ali, Ben Richardson, Anekshan Gobikrishnan, Charlie Plows, Harry Justice, Niam Patel, Jesse Chiduake, Semiloore Bankole, Mark Juresh, and Cosmas Dunne. Congratulations to all. The class will be awarded prizes including Codementum memberships, Amazon gift cards, and a twin coding kit.
A total of 2,129 schools, 5,153 classes and 57,206 students from 133 countries around the world participated in this year’s competition across Primary, Secondary and High School categories.
Mr El Moudden, Teacher of Computer Science, commented, “I am very pleased with the results and to see the journey our students take to bring their learning to life is truly exceptional. Building on the many successes from last year is incredible and we’ll continue to pursue additional competitive opportunities. We believe competitions help boost and challenge our learners to apply their coding skills to real world applications.
“The international Codementum coding competition allowed our students to demonstrate some of the many soft skills valued by employers, such as teamwork, problem-solving and time management. Plus, the mix of technical knowledge and professional skills enriches their experience.
“I am proud to see our students competing with some of the best students from schools around the world. My class have thoroughly enjoyed competing and coming second place out of 5,153 classes from 133 countries across the world is just brilliant!”
