Code Club @stfrancis Begins

Kia ora and welcome to Week One of our Code Clubs. We are so excited to get up and running with coding at St Francis of Assisi. This week we will cover creating accounts, sharing expectations and guidelines, and begin coding. We are registered as a Code Club with Code Club Aotearoa and will be coding our way through their amazing learning modules. The Module our Years 5-8 Students will be starting with is Scratch Module 1

We now have over 110 students who have signed up to be in one of our three clubs, luckily we have several keen teachers who have volunteered their time to run these clubs, a big thank you to them, as we wouldn't be able to cater to such large groups if they weren't so keen.
