Students get the CGi coding bug

The CGi has extended its support of coding clubs in the island’s high schools for the last three years into two primary schools – Castel and St Martin’s.

The partnership has seen teachers pick up the subject with the support of technology professionals, who lead the sessions and work with the pupils.

CGi chairman Larry Granger said the projects in the secondary and primary schools had been an outstanding success.

‘We have had more than 100 students in high schools go through the coding clubs,’ he said.
‘Digital is here to stay, these skills will be needed in the future, and we are trying to create the opportunity for young people.

‘Students in the clubs are already progressing at a challenging rate and even at their tender ages they are eager to demonstrate their achievements and showcase the school’s success.’

The primary scheme is supported by CGi member firm Fultura.
