THE HOUR OF CODE AT GLENEALY!
The Hour of Code is a global movement with more than 100 million learners in 180 countries. Find out more here.
By exposing our students to fundamental computing concepts, we can help inspire today’s generation of students to build technology, and not just be passive end-users.
During the Hour-of-Code, our students choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, and learnt at their own pace. Each level and class did a slightly different course.
Our school’s Digital Literacy program will continue to build upon the skills of computer science - critical thinking, logic & reasoning, resilience & persistence, and creativity, which will help students excel at problem-solving in all subject areas.
If you’d like to see what your child has been doing at school, visit this website with your child to learn more! Some classes already have log-ins, others will receive their log in next term.
Contact Trish Oliver at email@example.com with any questions.

Books For Birthdays!
Thank you to all the students (featured below) who have participated in the School Books for Birthdays program.
We've had an outstanding response in Term 1, and over 60 students have donated new books this term alone - that's 60 new books for all to enjoy!
If your child has a birthday coming up in Term 2 or 3, please consider our Books For Birthdays program!

Learning in the Library
Year 2 Unit of Inquiry
We've been using many of the books and pre-selected websites and databases to find information and take notes as part of our research.
The whole unit was a celebration of learning!
Year 3 Unit of Inquiry
Students formulated questions, made a graphic organiser, took notes and thought of presentation modes to show their learning.
We all learned something new!
Year 4 Unit of Inquiry
Students have been researching, taking notes and being careful of plagiarism by writing notes into their own words.
Carefully selected websites have helped with this and there's been lots of fun learning along the way!
Hong Kong Young Writers - starting in January!
If your child is a keen writer, please encourage them to join the writing competition. There is also a chance to enter cover art, if your child is a keen artist!
For more information, please see the HKYWA website here.
