The School of Computing sponsored a programming competition at Bayridge Secondary School on May 9th. The first annual Bayridge Coding Invitational for High School students hosted 25 teams from five different schools, nearly 100 students in total. Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School won the gold, Bayridge students took silver and bronze.
QSC would like to extend special thanks to Professor Wendy Powley for supporting and attending the competition, as well as three of our students who helped out on the day: Michael Cox, Aydan Macgregor and Noon Kho.
The coding competition was organized by Bayridge Computer Science teacher Jon Swaine. Jon Swaine’s dedication to student life was recently celebrated with the ’23 Fred L. Bartlett Memorial Award from the OPSBA, given to one teacher every year to recognize their outstanding contribution to education throughout Ontario.
