Wellington College win the Allstate Young Software Engineers Team Award for 2016 for Key Stage 3

10th March 2016 in Events

On Thursday 10th March, 10 primary and post-primary schools from the Greater Belfast Area were selected to compete in a web-based challenge sponsored by W5 and Allstate in Strathearn School.  The theme for this year’s competition focused on the sustainability of the ocean. The title for the challenge was “Creating a Blue Society”.

Each team consisted of four students and one teacher. Each team was to receive training sessions based on the “Go Berserk; Making Websites using html code” book – written by Ian Simons, our previous ICT HOD at Wellington.  A mentor from a local business/ industry with expertise in web design was also allocated to support each team if required.

Prior to the event each team was to build their own website and were encouraged to introduce more advanced elements. Teams then attempted to recreate the website they had been developing to demonstrate their newly acquired programming skills on the day.

Prizes were awarded based on a series of criteria including; presentation/ enthusiasm, use of html code, teamwork, planning and design, visual impact, does it meet the brief, and how the site works (functionality.)

The Wellington College team of Harvey Duffin, Aaron Burke, Joshua Barret and Paddy Boyle and Mr Lyttle won the “Allstate Young Software Engineers Team Award for 2016 for Key Stage 3”, defeating Campbell, Aquinas, Strathearn and St Joseph’s on the way.

Harvey Duffin was also singled out for a special award for his photographic/video excellence production for the website. 

The judges from Allstate commented that the Wellington College website was outstanding and was more of an A level standard rather than KS3.  They were most impressed with the overall professional design, the high quality photos/video assets and the mobile friendly features of the website.
