OzCLO (Australian and Computational Linguistics Olympiad) was held on Wednesday 8th March. OzCLO is a nationwide competition for students in Years 9-12. It challenges them to develop their own strategies for solving problems in fascinating real languages. Participating in OzCLO enhances students’ understanding of linguistic structures, which in turn, supports and enriches learning in subjects such as English, LOTE and English Language. Additionally, students enhance their capacity to recognise patterns and solve problems in a collaborative environment.
This competition has grown in popularity over the years. And students are consistently ranking highly in relation to the rest of the state.
Last year, of our 21 registered teams, two teams received a silver certificate, placing them in the top 50% of the state and one team achieved a gold certificate, placing them in the top 25% of the state.
The 2017 results have just been announced. This year, five teams received a silver certificate and one team received a gold certificate. An outstanding result!
I would like to congratulate teams that have entered every year, many of whom have shown improvement in their abilities. In particular, congratulations to Jenny, Tarra, Katha and Elizabeth, who have achieved a gold certificate in the. Additionally, it is impressive that for the first time, we have a team at Year 9 and Year 10 that has achieved a silver certificate. This augurs well for their performance in the next few years.
Next term, during assembly, certificates will be presented to all participants.
Congratulations to all students who participated in this challenging competition. Here is a list of teams that have received silver and gold certificates over the past two years:
