For the first time, on Monday 3rd December, Collinstown students joined in the worldwide Hour of Code experience. Students from First and Second Year started off with an exercise using the BBC Microbits and then progressed onto various coding exercises using their choice game of Minecraft. The session was watched over by Ms Healy ably abetted by Mr Behan. The First Year head, Ms McNamee, and the Principal Ms Duffy came along to show their support. Students found the hour too short but were promised by Ms Healy that there would be many more opportunities.
Any student interested in joining the after-school Coding Club should talk to Ms Healy, Mr Behan or Mr Doolin.
