SACO 2012:Bronze medal in National Computer Olympiad

Altogether 13 000 high school learners entered this year’s Computer Application Olympiad, doubling the 2010 figure.

This year’s Applications Olympiad finalists were very representative of the country – coming from six of the nine provinces. Unlike in the past when the Western Cape and girls dominated the Finals, this year there were no finalists from the Western Cape.

Thiolan Naidoo and Rishen Singh from Star College were invited to Cape Town as being the TOP learners of KZN.

First place went to Ziyaad Seedat, a Grade 12 learner at the Ligbron Academy of Technology in Ermelo, Mpumalanga. Apart from winning a gold medal and the prestigious CoZa Cares Trophy, he also won a scholarship to the University of Cape Town, an Apple iPad and R3 000 prize money.

Silver medals went to Salomè Bloem, a Grade 12 learner at the Hoër Volkskool in Potchefstroom, North West Province and Michael Harrison of Grade 12 at Michaelhouse in KwaZulu-Natal.

Bronze medals went to Lwandle Makhoba, a Grade 11 learner at Horizon High School in Johannesburg, Thiolan Naidoo, also a Grade 11 learner, at the Star College in Durban, and Mpumelelo Sibiya of the Ligbron Academy of Technology in Ermelo, Mpumalanga.
