The end of year CoderDojo Coolest Projects event was on Saturday in the RDS. More than 1,000 coders (Ninjas), from 17 countries presenting their tech projects they've been working on. There was a team of girls from Italy beside us and judges told us teams had come from as far as Argentina and Australia for the event. 10,000 people came to the RDS to see the projects on Saturday.

We had 4 Greenlanes pupils representing the school and our CoderDojo, presenting their projects, coded in Scratch at Greenlanes CoderDojo (and home!).

Ben Forrest, Ferdia and Naoise Watson presented their 'Snakes and Ladders' game which the judges and everybody that came to our stand loved playing.

Hugh McNally presented his 'Lynx OS' project, a mobile operating system simulator with great apps. The great news is that Hugh won first prize in the Scrarch 11 year old category! https://twitter.com/coolestprojects/status/876108063769538560
Hugh won some lovely prizes and they are richly deserved.

So we're very proud Hugh is part of our CoderDojo at Greenlanes and very proud of Ben, Ferdia and Naoise for creating their great snakes and ladders game and showing it so enthusiastically on Saturday. We hope this will inspire more coding ninjas in Greenlanes to come to CoderDojo and build awesome things.

We would like to thank everybody - teachers and staff, children, parents, volunteers, sponsors, Dublin County Council, the Scouts and the Gardai for their contribution to the Sponsored Walk.

We were fortunate to have a beautiful morning and judging from feedback everybody appears to have enjoyed the visit to Bull Island. It was a great team effort and we appreciate the engagement and enthusiasm of all in support of the school

 
Thanks

A huge congratulations to all classes, staff, pupils and parents for participating in our Discover Primary Science and Maths Programme this year. Due to your participation and hard work we have just received the Discover Primary Science and Maths Award.

A lot of time, preparation and hard work went into planning and organsing the programme and presenting our Discovery Log for review. The Discovery Log was a key aspect of the application for an Award and  provided all the evidence the judging panel needed to demonstrate that Greenlanes met all of the criteria for an Award of Science & Maths Excellence. 

Well Done All!
