The Hour of Code at Canadian Academy was a huge success.  We had over 350 Secondary students and teachers participating between 2:25-3:25 last Friday and Ms. Shigeta did coding with all elementary students from KB through Grade 5 in their classes.

Through this whole school initiative, we hope that we peaked students’ interests with programming and Computer Science.  Regardless of a person’s passion, understanding programming will allow them to create products and solutions in any field.

If students are interested in programming, we encourage them to sign-up for after school clubs, participate in Life is Tech camps around Japan and internally they can sign up for Design: Programming in Grade 9 and code in Grade 10 Design.
