Moonhack 2019

Code Club members and those with a Scratch account (available for free online) were invited to take part in ‘Moonhack 2019’ this week. Students celebrated the 50th anniversary of the moon landing by building their own space-themed game. Moonhack is held annually with the ambition of getting as many kids together to write code alongside a space theme. In 2017 there were 28,000 participants worldwide and in 2018, 35,000 students took part. We look forward to hearing the record breaking number of participants for this year. Thank you to those who were involved at GCC this week. Who knows, maybe one day a Code Club member will help send the first people to Mars.

Book Week and Book Fair

Book Week is coming soon! The CBCA Book Week theme for 2019 is Reading is my Secret Power. Book Week will run in Week 5, from Monday 19 August – 23 August. We will be running our annual Book Fair during Book Week to celebrate reading. Our Secondary Character Day will be held on Tuesday 20 August, and the Primary Parade on Thursday 22 August. We also have an author visit for the Prep – Year 2 classes on Friday 23 August with author/illustrator Peter Carnavas to look forward to.

Please see the details below for the Primary and Secondary competitions. Entries are due in Week 4, on Monday 12 August.

See you in the library.
