Labour MPs Louisa Wall, Tamati Coffey, Nanaia Mahuta and Adrian Rurawhe visited the school this morning and did a tour through the Pathways rooms with some of the prefects. During their visit they spent time speaking with students in the Coding room. Tyla, Shannen and Levi did a fantastic job answering their questions knowledgeably and showed them how they are learning to code and what they have been able to achieve so far. Considering this is their first day at Coding, they managed to impart a lot of knowledge.

Anna Waller in Pukaki 4/7 has created an original project which she has called "Cook a Pig". She had to import an image to fit the concept and has experimented with the blocks until she got the outcome she was looking for. Play the game and see what happens when you catches a pig with a stove!

This week Tunohopu planned and started creating their first games. James Atkinson worked diligently all morning to create this game called "Hungry Shark". He drew the harpoon himself as it wasn't in the media library. You play this game by helping the dolphin eat as many fish as he can while dodging the harpoons!

Five new classes started Coding this week. The students have got off to a flying start - working through a set of lessons designed to teach them some basic coding concepts. They are using Tynker which uses code "blocks" which the students interlock to form the code they need. At the rate they are going, they will be designing their own games very soon - watch this space!
