Coding Camp

The 8-day holiday camp is a specially curated camp for the Oct-Dec 2020 School Holidays. We want to help engage children in a challenging and fun way during this period of extended home-based learning.

On each day of the camp, students will be taught new programming concepts, and practice how to apply them in their daily coding challenges. Students will be grouped into classes with similar ages and capabilities. The class sizes are kept small at 6 students per class to ensure teachers can spend time helping individual students.

Yes! This camp will be conducted fully online! Not to worry, we have been doing fully online classes since early 2020 and have a fully equipped Online Virtual Classroom for the best online learning experience for your child!
