Congratulations to Mr. Kwan and the above students for their outstanding achievements!

The theme for this year’s Code Quest was “The Battle of Red Cliffs”. During each code combat, participants faced each other and were required to refine and improve their codes constantly throughout the match through various trials. Once participants submitted their codes, the codes battled against each other until a winner was decided. Through various trials and errors, Mr Kwan was able to beat countless opponents from all around the world and was ranked 7th in the world. 

Once again, we congratulate Mr Kwan, Chan Alex Long Hin, Chan Chin Lok and Chow Pak Man for their outstanding performances and achievements in the tournament!
