Shire of Dardanup Library Services now have 2 Teachers trained up and we are ready to start our Coding Club in May 2018.

We strongly encourage parents to come along and be a part of what their child is working on and achieving.

Code Club is Always Free For Everyone!

Code Club aims to give every kid the chance to learn code and programming – all for free!

Computational and Problem Solving Skills

Calling all kids to learn how to collaborate, create, communicate and problem solve! Code Club is project based learning, and it is also aligned to the National Digital Technologies Curriculum. We CELEBRATE errors!!!
