Code Club simply provides another opportunity for students to develop their coding skills further outside of the classroom. All students at Harrisdale Primary School are taught coding/computational thinking in their classrooms as part of the Digital Technologies Curriculum. There are over 9,000 Code Clubs running around the world and official Code Club communities in 10 countries. Find out more at https://codeclubau.org
When: Tuesdays from 3pm – 4pm in the library

Membership: There are three or four cohorts each year. A cohort is a group of up to 16 children working together for 7-8 weeks. Following on from the expression of interest, you will receive an email to confirm the cohort that your child has been grouped into, as well as permission slips if your child will be involved in Term 1. Students who are interested can register their interest at: https://forms.gle/f7RUaU5ZqKJowYvH7
Costs: Students will use the school’s MacBook computers to code using a program called ‘Scratch’. This is a free program available for most home computers (iPads use the app ‘Scratch Jnr’).
