Google Australia has recently announced the recipients of their Computer Science for High Schools (CS4HS) grant program which is provided to organisations who are able to train K-12 teachers in computational thinking and digital technologies. SCAS has been offered this grant for the second year and is one of only two schools on the list of 26 Australian and NZ recipients, sharing this achievement with organisations such as the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), Code Club Australia, and several prominent universities. With the idea in mind that teachers are the key to both educating and inspiring the next generation of innovators in the classroom, we’re grateful to receive the support from Google that allows us to provide them with the skills and resources they need to teach computer science concepts in fun and engaging ways.

SCAS Year 10 student Angus Gill has written and recorded this song inspired by Jordan Rice, the teenager who tragically lost his life when he told rescuers to save his brother first during the devastating Queensland floods in 2011. Angus' song is available on iTunes here: http://geni.us/zJX with proceeds going to support the Jordan Rice Foundation to assist and counsel those affected by natural disasters.
