On the 25th of February, we had a special visitor attend our school. The weather reporter from Channel 10, Mike Larkan, delivered the daily weather and involved students from Fawkner Primary School.
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 35% of all high schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Fawkner Primary School is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills.
