Time To Code

1st Feb 2018

Mr Meehan’s primary 5 class have completed the Time to Code pilot programme and attended the celebration event on Wednesday 24 January 2018 in Beam Social Enterprise Centre.

Time to Code is a unique volunteering initiative for children at Key Stage 2. It is designed to help teach children how to code, build their confidence and develop their social skills in a fun and relaxed environment.

 A key element of Time to Code is encouraging volunteers to provide a workplace visit for the children. This helps to inspire children about the world of work and gives them a greater understanding of the job their mentor does. It’s also great fun for all involved!

At the celebration event the positive impact that the pilot programme had on the young people and volunteers involved was evident. The children thoroughly enjoyed the scheme and we look forward to the next programme.

Congratulations to our Primary 5 class for their wonderful contribution to the scheme.
