Six students at St Joseph's Primary received 100 percent in the NCSS Coding Challenge in 2019.
The NCSS Challenge is a programming competition open to all school students and teachers designed to extend and test their knowledge in coding and using technology.
The challenge has been happening for over 12 years and this is the second year St Joseph's Primary has taken part.
Teacher Sarah Blundell said students have embraced the coding challenge exceeding even their own expectations.
"We had one class take part in the challenge last year and only three students received 100 percent so to double that a year later is fantastic," Ms Blundell said.
"The challenge itself is unique in that it teachers students as they move along the challenge showing them a new technique and then getting them to practice and build on it."
The five week challenge started on July 29 with students logging on each week to complete a series of new challenges.
Year six students Dexter Maher, Tyler Charnock, Milly McGrath, Bodhi Parsons and Keanu Smiech and year five student Erin Little all took top honours in the challenge.
"I think the challenge is really good because it actually teaches you about technology and coding while you are doing the challenge," Dexter said.
"I think it is easier to learn something if you are doing it for yourself and this was a great challenge because you would learn something and then straight away do it."
Erin was the only student in her year level to get 100 percent in the challenge.
"It was my first year doing the challenge and I was the only year five student to get 100 percent," Erin said.
"I figured if I gave it a shot it was better than not doing it at all and I am pretty happy with how I did.
"It was really fun and I can't wait to do it again next year."
