​​Winter School

Background​

The Academy of Computer Science and Software Engineering started the winter school in IT in 2009. The aim of the winter school is to support grade 12 learners with the programming component of the school curriculum. There are learners who are not given the right skill set by their teachers, who may not have the right t​raining themselves, as IT is a scarce skill in South Africa. Then there are learners who are working towards a distinction, who need to fine-tune their programming skills in preparation for the final exam. 

At the Delphi and Java winter schools there are yearly between 70 to 100 learners from many schools in Gauteng and other provinces such as Abbotts College, Alberton High, Akasia High, Benoni High, Bryanston High, Concord College, Curro College Hazeldean, Crawford College Sandton, Damelin, Dinamika, Dominican Convert, Empro Academy, Fourways High, Glenvista High, Helpmekaar Kollege, Hoerskool Bastion, Hoerskool Die Anker, HS Florida, HS Linden, HS Standerton, HS Pietersburg, HS Randburg, HS Standerton, Impak, 3D centre Centurion, Jeppe High for Boys, Kempton High, King Edward VII, Metropolitan College, Midrand High, Motswedi High, Northcliff High, Radley Private School, Randpark Ridge, Rand Private College, Reddam House Bedforview, Sama High School, Sandringham High, St Benedicst College.​
