BEAVER COMPUTING CHALLENGE

The Beaver Computing Challenge (BCC) introduces computer science to students. It is designed to get students with little or no previous experience excited about computing. The BCC is a problem solving contest with a focus on computational and logical thinking. Questions are inspired by topics in computer science but only require comfort with concepts found in mathematics curriculum common to all provinces. Connections to Computer Science are described in the solutions to all past contests.

Format

  • 45 minutes
  • 12 multiple choice questions for 60 total marks (Grade 5/6)
  • 15 multiple choice questions for 90 total marks (Grade 7/8 and Grade 9/10)
  • some calculators permitted

The contest is held online in schools.

REMEMBRANCE DAY

Remembrance Day is coming up on Wednesday, November 11th and Prestige School wants to ensure that students are honouring this day. Poppies will be available to students from Monday, November 9th. Students can bring in a small donation ($2-5) and receive a poppy from their homeroom teacher.

Prestige staff and students are looking forward to commemorating our veterans on November 11th. Kindergarten-Grade 3 will take part in activities organized by their homeroom teachers. Ms. Angela has planned activities for grades 4-8 about the history of Remembrance Day and the Legion. Grades 4-8 will also be participating in a Remembrance Day poetry contest in English class. Ms. Brittney and Mr. Briggs have organized an insightful video for high school students to watch, which will be followed by a class discussion. At 11:00 am, there will be a school-wide moment of silence to remember those who have fought for our freedom.
