INTENSIVE COMPETITION TRAINING

Students who perform well in term lessons may be invited to join competition teams and enrol in the intensive competition training courses. These courses are designed to ensure that students are able to compete in high-level competitions.

Training programs are generally run before or throughout a competition period. Therefore, these courses might only be running for a few months every year at specific times.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY COMPUTING CHALLENGE (OUCC)

The OUCC is a two-round online competition that uses students' skills further to produce programmed solutions to computational thinking problems.

Students in this training program solve a variety of complex programs and learn how to solve difficult problems and tricks to help save time with completing challenges.

Students in junior programs will primarily learn the blockly language which is used in the competition whilst senior students will learn both blockly and Python 3 to be able to solve the more difficult problems.

AUSTRALIAN INFORMATICS OLYMPIAD (AIO)

In the AIO, students write short computer programs to solve six problems that vary in difficulty. The competition does not test computer literacy or knowledge but is focused on problem solving through programming skills.

Students in this program use Python 3 to learn how to solve a variety of complex and difficult challenges to try to achieve outstanding results in the AIO competition.
