Our SNPA Coder Dojo Club




Our SNPA Coder Dojo club runs on a Sunday morning. We are currently focused on Scratch and App Inventor. Anyone who gets involved needs to participate at some level in helping in the club. At Christmas, we awarded white and yellow usb belts. We have a number of parents who mentor at the club and without their help, the club could not function. The club is open to students in the school in 4th, 5th and 6th classes. 
If anyone is interested in getting their child involved, they should contact Greg on 087 7904315.
