Collinsville Coding Kids kicks goals!

In a new program supported by the QCoal Foundation, Year 4, 5 and 6 students from St John Bosco Catholic School and their teacher have completed a course on using the Scratch program to learn how to perform coding.

Delivered by existing QCoal Foundation partner, the Collinsville Connect Telecentre, students were taught on site at the Telecentre weekly during Term 2.

St John Bosco Principal Colette Williams said the program was very popular with both students and staff, with students particularly very excited to learn basic coding skills.

The QCoal Foundation is very pleased with the outcomes of this program and particularly the way in which local groups worked together to make the most of existing resources.

The Foundation will continue to work with both the school and the Telecentre to look at ways to ensure that local students and the school community can build on this knowledge and enhance their skills.
