It is Computer Science in Education week and 5th and 6th class pupils are participating in the Hour of Code, an global initiative running this week to encourage children to try an hour of computer coding. Damien and Louise have been working with 5th and 6th class and the programme has gone viral! We were even featured in the Irish Independent. A photographer came to take our pictures and some sixth class had a conference call with Greg Harkin, a journalist from the paper, who featured our story! Well done everybody!
