Unlocking the code

Last week, students in Year 2 to Year 6 were part of the POP Hour of Code. The students undertook a range of challenges to learn the basics of coding or challenged themselves with something more.

Earlier in Term 2, the Prince of Peace Lutheran College Junior Campus teachers also spent time learning to code.

Coding is considered an important skill for the 21st century. At its core, coding is about using analytical skills to organise, clarify and process information, then imagine and create possibilities – connecting ideas while considering all alternatives.

The Prince of Peace Prep and Year 1 students are not missing out, as they continue developing coding and thinking skills using Bee-Bots, simple robots that help teach early computing and programming. Year 1 students will also participate in the Hour of Code later in Term 2.
