STEM Grant & Coding

In November, the school applied for grant funding for STEM activities. We were fortunate to be chosen. The funding provided for an external provider to teach 4th & 5th classes coding skills. The classes thoroughly enjoyed it.  The rest of the funding will pay for STEM equipment which will be used by the whole school. We are excited to use this equipment with the girls in the years ahead!
