GetIT-Women in Technology App competition
We are excited to share that out of 156 schools across the country, our Year 8 computer science students reached the top 10 semi-final/finalist stages of the recently concluded Amazon GetIT-Women in Technology App competition.
They were awarded their medals and presents by representatives from AWS and sent a personal congratulatory message by the founder of the AWS GetIT and Head of strategic engagement, Mrs Ouarti, on their achievements.
Selina, Joonu, Elizabeth, Holly and Anna- all now in Year 9, worked hard before, during and after the lockdown to get their entry in and their hard work has paid off. They are now considered as peer mentors for future events and will be giving guidance and support to the new Year 8 students taking part in the competition. They will gain essential leadership skills that they can apply in their academic and professional lives.
Congratulations Selina, Joonu, Elizabeth, Holly and Anna on your hard work, motivation and achievement.
Let’s keep coding.
