Summer Term in Computing

It has been a busy term in the Computing department.  S4, 5 and 6 pupils have been busy with their SQA examinations.  We now await the results in nervous anticipation.  Mrs Shuttleworth’s S3 class has been to Napier University for the IT4U event where they were involved in encryption, Scratch programming and games development.

We have seen a move to the new timetable which has gone smoothly, with pupils becoming familiar with their new teachers before the summer break.  It has been a busy time in class with the new S2 pupils working hard to complete their cultural projects and the new S3 has been looking at Security, and in particular, encryption techniques. Senior phase classe have started their new SQA courses and have already managed to complete some topics.

We wish everyone a lovely holiday!

Dr Vint Cerf Discussions

At the end of August, Mrs Shuttleworth and six of her delightful S5/6 pupils attended an event at the Sheraton Grand Hotel.  School Debate: A Discussion with Vint Cerf was organised by ScotlandIS and involved secondary schools from across Scotland.  Pupils were able to raise their questions with one of the worlds leading internet experts, Dr Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist at Google. Pupils thoroughly enjoyed their morning out and were a credit to the Computing department.
