Hour of Code

Hour of Code

Congratulations to all the boys who have written thousands of lines of code this week as part of the Hour of Code initiative. The aim is to interest boys and girls all over the world in coding and the boys in St. Joseph’s are really enjoying the challenges posed and we have some programmers of the future. For the past few weeks we have been working on Scratch and this week we’re using Javascript.

Here are the links for pupils to access their accounts
