THREE Christ Church Grammar School students are among 25 others ranked as the best in the country in algorithms.

Joshua Chen, Max Godfrey and Ashley Porter will head to Canberra from December 13 to 23 to attend the 2019 Informatics School of Excellence at the Australian National University after outstanding performances in the 2019 Australian Informatics Olympiad.

The students will spend 10 days undergoing intense algorithm and coding training.

“This is the third year in a row that we have had three students invited to attend the Informatics School of Excellence,” informatics teacher Jan Honnens said.

“The School of Excellence is the first step on the journey towards the International Olympiad in Informatics, and the boys’ next big goal is to qualify for the Selection School in April.”
