Hour of Code

2016

We took part in the Hour of  Code in December. Everyone was able to chose their own activity to do and their own level as well. It was great seeing Moanna, Star wars, minecraft and all the other activities the children completed. We were very lucky to be featured in the Irish Independent on the Friday!

2015

This year December 2015, we took part in our second hour of code. We love to code in school and we really enjoy checking out the hour of code guided lessons. This year we decided to try and spread the word a little further, we invided Ciaran Cannon TD who is one of the driving forces of  Hour of Code in Ireland and founder of ExcitED to our school to take part in an hour of code with us and some of our parents and locals from the community. The event went very well despite the floods and difficulty getting here!! We would really like to thank Ciaran, the locals John, Áine, Fr. Mike, and our parents who attended and we are very proud of you all getting your Hour of Code certificates well done!!
