Term 4 – 2021

Located in the computer room at Cottesloe Primary School.

Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:15 – 4:30.

Students are welcome to trial the first class for free! Just make sure they’re registered as there are limited spots available and will often fill up quickly.

Using Scratch, a web-based block-coding language created by MIT, students will learn the fundamentals of programming and logic, (along with a little bit of maths) while having access to a large collection of sound effects and graphics – everything they need to construct their very own game! In Term 4 both classes will be using a new game engine with a focus on maps and coordinates.

The classes are run by Michael Rose, a developer with over five years of experience teaching programming to kids.

Terms and Conditions

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students, 

In order to make our lessons as safe and rewarding as possible I ask the Parents and Students to read the following documentation and acknowledge that it is your responsibility to have an understanding of what is expected of students who attend the Cottesloe Code Club after-school classes. To ensure all of the students are able to apply themselves during the lesson there are some rules that all students are expected to follow. Please note that breaking of these rules, depending on severity, may result in temporary suspension from class. The rules are as follows:

Students must:

  • Listen to instructions and follow them to best of their ability.
  • Use the computers only for activities students have been instructed to use them for. 
  • Respect the property of the school as well as other students, and teacher’s property.
  • Respect their classmates and their work.

Thank you for your child’s participation in the classes, and for respecting the rules set out for the safety and well being of the entire class. Please make sure you’ve read the rules and you and your child understand them, as well as the consequences if they are to break these rules.

In agreeing to the terms and conditions, Parents and Guardians understand that they are allowing their student’s work to be posted to a page on this website along with the student’s first name and year. This will be to highlight the best games produced via the class to mark a great achievement and also show prospective student’s what can be achieved in the class. If you’d like your child’s name left off of the post, please let Mr. Rose know in the notes section of the registration form.

Payment is due by the start of the second lesson. An invoice with payment details will be emailed to you shortly after the form has been submitted.
