Informatics students Lumina Gajanayake (Year 11) and Devin He (Year 12) have been selected to attend the Australian Informatics Olympiad Committee Selection School at Macquarie University in Sydney from 11 to 20 April.

This is Devin’s fifth camp and something both boys thoroughly enjoy – catching up with like-minded people from around the country and learning new concepts.

“With a future that is technology driven, the coding and mathematics we are practising is really important,” said Devin.

“It is like learning a new language – thinking about and solving a problem which is fun but also complex and with an end result that can be a beautiful solution,” said Lumina.

“A lot of the jobs we will be doing in the future haven’t been created yet, and a lot of this work is going to be related to technology. Informatics is something I like and it would be great if I could incorporate it into my future.”

This camp is an important step in their journey to representing the Australian Team at the International Olympiad in Informatics and we wish them the best of luck.
