Rotary Computer Challenge helps put Chilterns on the map
The Rotary Club of Misbourne Matins in Gerrards Cross recently held its annual Louis Moss Rotary Computer Challenge, aimed at encouraging pupils to hone their computer skills to generate a wider interest in IT.
This year’s competition was open to pupils in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 across selected primary schools in and around Gerrards Cross. The theme was to design “A Tourist Poster for the Chilterns”; the children were encouraged to highlight the various attractive features, events and activities the Chilterns have to offer.
After consideration of all the entries, judges from co-sponsors B P Collins LLP, Nexus IT Support and Repair, and Bramptons Estate Agents decided on the winner, runner-up and third and fourth place from each year group. A prize was also awarded to the school of the winning student in each age category. The awards were then presented at the prize-giving evening on Friday 24 April.
The winners from each year group were Charlie Young from Thorpe House (Year 3); Monty Sanders from CSP Academy (Year 4); Orlando Doyle from CSP Village School (Year 5); and Grant Morgan from Butler’s Court (Year 6).
B P Collins partner and co-organiser of the challenge, Nick Hallchurch, was impressed with the standard of this year’s entries, and commented: “The Rotary Computer Challenge encourages younger students to use their imagination and creative skills, and helps provide support to our local schools. It is a great opportunity for schools in the area to receive some positive publicity as well as the enjoyment of participation.”
The top four entries of each year group received a selection of book tokens, with the winning school in each category receiving a cheque for £100.
