On the 16th and 17th of October, 1st- 6th classes had the privilege of taking part in a coding workshop with Matt Hanlon and Mr. Owen Hughes, a teacher from Loreto Abbey. We were also joined by two 4th year students also from Loreto Abbey.

Each pupil was given an iPad to code on. We used the Code Machine and Hello Byte on Swift Playgrounds. Code Machine lets you use basic coding strategies like loops and functions. Hello Byte helps you learn how to write code and fix any errors in your code.

All students enjoyed the experience thoroughly. We really appreciate Matt, Mr. Owen Hughes and the 4th year students who made it possible. We hope to have more opportunities like this in the future.
