WELCOME TO OUR NEW MEMBERS OF THE ICT DEPARTMENT
The ICT Department would like to welcome the following teachers warmly:
I am an ICT and Maths teacher. Previously I was working in the IT industry in many roles including developer, project manager and business analyst. I love both ICT and Maths and am very excited to be teaching at McKinnon Secondary College.
To relax I love playing croquet and cooking. My go to dish is Green Chicken Curry. I have a Cairn Terrier called Fudgy and she loves food and lots of cuddles.
My name is Enver Bise and I am an ICT and Maths teacher here at McKinnon. I enjoy all kinds of music (also play guitar), play all kinds of games with friends, enjoy cooking and I have a 10-year-old German Shepherd named Milo who I walk every morning before work (he also enjoys it when I cook outside with him).
GROK COMPETITIONS ARE ON AGAIN!
Grok will again be running a series of competitions this year, starting with the NCSS Challenge which starts on Monday 12 February. This competition is perfect for beginners of all ages learning to code visually with blocks.
Learn how to program using the Blockly visual environment while you compete with students from around the world! For more of a challenge, you can also try out the Python platform.
The Beginners stream is designed for students with no prior experience in programming. This level is most suited to students in junior secondary school (12-16-year-olds) or anyone who wants to start with the basics.
Grok offers two versions of the Beginners challenge, one in Blockly (block-based coding - this one) and one in Python (text programming). Contact Ms Ho for further details and the appropriate level for you to start your programming endeavours.
This is particularly good for students who have an interest in programming and would like to give it a try or enhance their current interest, it is a great way to challenge themselves and learn to code!
Any interest should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Students should continue to check Compass for information on all the Grok competitions the school will offer this year.
