Stage 1 Coding Projects

Students from Stage 1 recently had fun learning to code using Scratch. Students wrote and debugged their programs and shared them in class studios. Take a closer look at one of our Year 2 student's program here: Lachlan's Project. Luke's Science Project (Year 4). You can also try out Jerome's game (Year 6) . 

Student safety whilst online is paramount to Avoca Beach Public School. The DoE network access has grade levelled firewalls and each students use of the internet is closely monitored by all teachers. Cybersafety is taught during technology and PDHPE lessons.
