Year Four student at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School in Wyoming, Fraser Maple, has been awarded a perfect score in the Year 4 Digital Technologies Competition in NSW and ACT.

Medals are given to students with the top score in each subject in each year level.

Fraser received a perfect score on a test covering databases, graphics and multimedia, internet use and email programs, networks and other communication systems, operating systems and computer hardware, programming, spreadsheets, and work processing.

Principal, Bernard Cummings, and Director of Schools and alumni from the University of NSW, Danny Casey, presented Fraser with the medal on the school grounds.

“The competition goes all over Australia, New Zealand, and Asia, but you had to get a perfect score across NSW and ACT to receive a medal,” Cummings said.

“These types of skills are part of the Science and Technology curriculum, so they do learn some coding at school.

“Fraser Maple is very conscientious.”

The award is a prestigious quality assessment with over one million student entries accepted from over 6,300 schools in Australia and New Zealand annually.
