CoderDojo’s Festive Night 2014

P1040845    P1040847

Our 67th CoderDojo session was held on the last Friday of November. This was our last session for 2014 and was attended by 60 very enthusiastic kids and their parents. We were very honoured to have our Deputy Mayor, Cionnaith O’Súilleabháin attend. Cionnaith has always been a great supporter of CoderDojo in Clonakilty. He spoke about imagination and happiness and the opportunities that our young coders will have in the future. He also very willingly tested out some of the festive games being created that evening and learned to play a makey makey piano with a banana – impressive stuff indeed.

We were also delighted to have Irene O’Callaghan of the Quality Hotel in attendance. We are so fortunate to have the support of the Quality Hotel and all their staff who have accommodated us so generously and patiently each week. It’s just a great venue for CoderDojo. Thank you so much!

We also showed our video highlighting pictures of the whole year. You can view it here.

The ninja’s did some great demos – some extremely festive and all very creative. …it was a busy night reflecting what has been another very busy year for CoderDojo Clonakilty. We highlighted many of our successes during the year. We have lots more to do and are very much looking forward to getting started again in 2015. All our young coders deserve great credit for all they have achieved during the year.

You can view a gallery of the night here with thanks to Wendy Cullinane for the superb photos!

None of this could be done without the support of our mentors and parents – we are so grateful.

Our next session will be on Friday 16th January (subject to confirmation). More info to follow. If you have any queries just email clonakilty@coderdojo.com.
