Pope Francis has recently spoken about our responsibilities toward s our planet reminding us about our role as:
Stewards Of All Creation
Over the last term and again in this one our students have had the opportunity to work coding or programming Ozo-bots to follow a course and travel in set directions. Not only has it been challenging but also great fun.
Recently we had Mandy – from A.C.U – in our class to assist the children program their Bee – Bots. They were to travel in a set course with a pin attached to the front of their black and yellow robots in order to burst a balloon which they had taped to a piece of paper.
And yes we had a few balloons pop-off!
It was a real collaborative effort and one which was enjoyed and valued by all.
We also placed the bee – bots on courses where the bot could make random choices so the students had to calculate the chances of it going in a particular direction – It was both challenging and most interesting.
A wonderful day last Sunday – great to see so many families. Here is a little piece on St.Luke I hope you will find interesting.

Elva – I thought that it was interesting that you can do lots and lots of things.

Wonderful day for all as we raised money for a wonderful cause – helping the homeless.
Today a few members of our class started using CS-First to help us learn more about coding using Scratch. CS-First has videos and ideas to help us learn.
Because the Olympics are on in Rio at the moment, we chose the Sports Theme and created Victory dances. That means we programmed our sprites to spin and jump up and down.
