Computer Programming & Literacy

Our Computer Lab uses the curriculum to support what the learners do in the classroom, using information technology and literacy to complete their tasks.  All grades, from Grade R to Grade 7, attend computer classes at least once per week.  On Wednesdays and Thursdays, the learners may attend Senior and Junior Computer Club respectively.  At these clubs, the learners study computer science, coding and robotics, which includes the use of Sphero and Bee-bot.
