The Minister for Education, Gilbert Licudi, QC has congratulated the Bayside team on behalf of HM Government of Gibraltar. After reaching the finals, the team from Bayside School beat teams from schools across the UK at a gruelling contest held at The National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park, UK.
Minister Licudi expressed his delight at the news of our boys' resounding victory at the Cyber Security Schools' Challenge:
"I never cease to be amazed at how tiny Gibraltar continues to punch above its weight even in the highly technical and specialised field of cyber security. Congratulations to the Bayside team".
He also thanked the teachers and the IT security professionals from the on-line gaming industry for volunteering to teach and prepare the team over the last few months.
On their return, the boys were greeted at the airport by Mr Licudi, Director of Education Mr Joey Britto and Bayside Headmaster Colin Skinner.
