Staff at St Joseph’s Primary School have introduced various lunch time clubs that are enabling students to avoid the elements and extend their learning through optional participation in subjects that interest them.
One of the popular clubs is the Coding Club that runs each Monday lunchtime in the senior classroom.
Students are using the Code Studio (code.org) online course to master coding basics. Launched in 2013, organisation is a non-profit group dedicated to expanding participation in computer science.
Their vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science.
“The students are having lots of fun learning how to be creators, rather than consumers, of digital content,” a spokesperson from the school said.
