The Junior School is excited to launch a new after school co-curricular opportunity for girls and boys in Years 3 to 6. Partnering with Code Club Australia, OC students will learn how to make computer games, animations and websites. Code Club is about fun, creativity and learning through exploring.
Learning to code is an important skill now we are living in a digital age. It is not just enough for children to know how to use technology, they should know how it works too. Learning to code doesn’t just mean you can become a developer; it strengthens problem solving skills and logical thinking, and supports key academic subjects such as Science, Maths and Technology.
Open to girls and boys in Years 3 to 6 the program will run on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3.30pm to 4.30pm. During Terms 1 and 2, students will be taught how to use Scratch, Term 3 will focus on HTML/CSS and Term 4 will explore coding using Python.
