Bright future: Guyra Central School’s Kye Nitschke is among 60 of Australia’s brightest technology buffs who took part in an exciting new program recently.

Guyra Central School’s Kye Nitschke is among 60 of Australia’s brightest technology buffs who visited Macquarie University in Sydney recently to take part in an advanced digital technology summer-school backed by the Coalition Government.

Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce congratulated Mr Nitschke and three other students from the New England on being selected to be part of the first digIT cohort, a program which will help take students’ skills in digital literacy, science, technology, engineering and mathematics to the next level.

“DigIT will expand their critical thinking, programming and problem-solving skills – skills that will be vital for Australia’s future successes,” Mr Joyce said.

DigIT summer schools will be held in a different capital city each year and are open to secondary students.
