As you may already be aware, some of our Grade 8 and 9 pupils have been working extremely hard this year on building robots and creating games. We are very proud to unveil the results of our coding and programming classes for the first time.

In collaboration with the TechSpark Academy, our students have been developing code that can power intelligent robotic life, and building snake-based games that can eat apples and navigate obstacles! Not only has this been a fun and highly engaging class, but the students have learned valuable skills which could prove very useful in their future careers.
