CODERDOJO We are seeking mentors to assist with a CoderDojo we are setting up in Canal Way ETNS. The Dojo will commence in early September 2016 and will run on Saturday afternoons.

CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based programming clubs for young people. At a Dojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and explore technology in an informal and creative environment. See for more information.

This really is an excellent opportunity to become involved in a very worthwhile initiative! Please complete this very short survey before the end of the school year if you are willing to become a mentor at our school’s Dojo.

A message from the Parents Association committee


Dear Parents,

On behalf of Canal Way, we would like to thank you all for volunteering and attending at our end of year finale on Sunday. It was a real team effort to pull it off so successfully.

It really looked like everyone had a great time and it was a fantastic community event to finish off the year of dedicated fundraising!!  If anyone has any photos of the event, we would love to see them. Please email  [email protected] if you have any.

We’re still finalising the amount raised but expect it to be in excess of 1k after expenses, which is in line with expectations.

Thanks again!
The Parents Association Committee
