Our Computer Science students, now in Year 10, have been very successful in taking first place in the Year 9 level at the BCS Schools Computing App Making competition covering the areas of Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire, Luton Borough, Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire.
Computer science students Jamie, Kelvin, Tayo and Nazim, then in Year 9, represented Walton High at the very end of the last academic year by creating an app on mobile phone security. Their entry took home the trophy, beating other schools who also took part. A large number of schools took part in the event, and according to the organiser Mrs Samosa, “this year in particular had a record number of high quality entries”; we are extremely proud of our students and celebrate their achievements. The competition’s aim is to cultivate young computing leaders and the focus of the app was to help young people stay safe when using the internet and when using technology in general. BCS (Bedford branch), the main organisers of the competition, collaborated with Bedfordshire Police, Cranfield University, CAS, schools and Finance and IT companies to make this competition a success.
Congratulations boys for your hard work, motivation and achievement. Let’s keep coding.
