Computer Programming Olympiad

Danielle Kleyn

Danielle Kleyn, also known as the “Queen of Mathematics” at Parel Vallei High School in Somerset West, once again pursued excellence when she took part in the 2020 Computer Programming Olympiad.

The olympiad is a challenge for learners who can use a programming language like Scratch, Python, Java, C++ or Delphi.

In the first round, the participants have to solve a number of problems using the language of their choice.

For the second and final round, the languages are more restricted and the olympiad becomes very competitive and difficult. Out of the 824 pupils that participated, Danielle came second in the Western Cape during the final round.
