On the last day of formal classes for the year, our Year 7 and Year 8 students participated in the biggest computing event in history, Hour of Code, joining over 100 million other students around the world. The activities were based on many themes, including Star Wars, Minecraft and Frozen. The philosophy of the event is that all students should be exposed to concepts of Computer Science, as these technologies are important in the world around them.
This idea aligns with the incorporation of a new Digital Technologies subject into the new Victorian Curriculum to be taught in all Victorian schools beginning in 2017. Diamond Valley College is already teaching aspects of this course, and will be expanding it further in 2016.
This coming Friday, September 4th 2015 is a Curriculum Day, where staff will be working on various Professional Development tasks.
Students are not required at school.
