Merensky High School is proud of Juan-Jacques Moller (grade 11) who tied for 2nd place in Limpopo in the Computer Applications Olympiad. This is a project of the Institute of IT Professionals South Africa, and hosted by the South African Computer Olympiad Trust.
The Applications Olympiad is a challenge for those who take CAT or the ICDL or are otherwise computer literate. The participants have to solve a number of problems using a common office package and the data provided. Contestants are allowed to use the application of their choice, such as the Word Processor, Spreadsheet, Database and Presentation Tool. There is only one paper for all age groups.
A total of 5226 learners participated in the first round this year. To be 2nd in the province is a remarkable accomplishment.
