Learn HTML and CSS to Build Web Pages | Ages 7 – 16+ | Sunday Afternoon

We will be using the Get Coding book by the Young Rewired State, a worldwide community of digital-makers aged 18 and under.

The Get Coding! book will not only teach you how to code, but also show you how fun and exciting it can be.

Coding is one of the most important skills young people can learn and there’s never been a better time to master it.

Together with the Get Coding! book and access to the w3schools.com website, we will learn how to code using three (3) essential programming languages:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javascript

HTML, CSS & Javascript are three of the most important programming languages in the world. They are used by web developers to build the websites and web-based apps and games you use everyday.

In the workshops, following the book and using an online HTML, CSS & JavaScript editor, you will learn real-life coding skills you can use to do all kinds of programming.

Importance of Coding / Programming

Computer programming or coding is a crucial skill every child should be learning.

We use computers to solve problems, play games, help us to work more effectively, perform repetitive tasks, store and recall information, create something new, and connect with our friends and the world.

Understanding how to code is empowering!

Everyone can learn to code – it’s just like solving a puzzle or a riddle.

Learn to code like a real programmer using text-based language!


“My son just loves it!. These are a wonderful set of coding courses for kids. The children are challenged, learn the fundamentals of coding different platforms, come hom bubbling and wanting to do more away from class. The key part of any review is would he go again? Well, he’s on his third course. Say no more!’ – John, Parent

“Hi Jenny, Zimo loves the computer class and will definitely continue next term.” – Yu, Parent

“Thanks Jenny. Anna has looooved her course!” – Tanya, Parent


Why kids should learn to code

Coding is fun!

Technology is becoming a part of everyday life. Every company, organisation and cause can benefit from technology. There are apps to help you buy, give, join, play, volunteer, connect, share – just about anything you can imagine.

Instead of just playing games, get kids to make their own game. They can create their own phone app!

With coding, you can bring to an idea to life by programming it on a computer.

When you program, you are taking an active role in technology – you’re not just having fun, you’re making something fun!

Coding is a Valuable Job Skill

Coding is the skill of the 21st century. Jobs today require more problem-solving ability than ever before, and more and more careers involve technology as an integral requirement.

People who can program – and thus solve problems quickly and effectively – are highly valued in today’s world, and they get to do interesting, fulfilling work.

If you can code, you can solve problems.

Problem solvers have the power to make the world a better place!
