AN app created by Dianella Secondary College students is in the running for a national award.
The group of Year 12 students developed the Buddi mobile phone app to help other immigrant students like themselves make friends at their new school in a foreign country.
They beat 200 teams to become State winners and represent WA at the iAwards in Melbourne on August 29.
The school offers years 11 and 12 students the ability to be part of the Just Start IT program and is the only WA school where participating students also receive a Certificate II in business.
City of Stirling recently provided $5000 for the school towards the program.
Principal Wayne Austin said it provided students with “real and transferrable learning business experiences”.
