The Department of Education has advised that pilot programmes in coding will start at some schools from 2020. Coding will soon become a subject offered at all SA Schools. We would like to get a head-start by introducing it as an extramural. Some of the teachers at our school will be trained to teach coding. There will be a cost of R200 per child per year. At the end of each level the child will receive a Certificate of Competency.
