We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Galaxy International School Uganda is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community.
This is a chance to change the future of education in Kampala-Uganda.
On the 7th of March our school held the annual House sports day, it was a day full of fun and competition. All houses were fully represented by their competitors from Early Years to Yr 13.
Neptune took 1st place and Venus,Jupiter and Mars followed respectively.
We had members of the Uganda Cranes come over and they put on a great show when they Joined the parents to play against GISU Teachers and students in a Football match that turned out very interesting. The game went into Penalty Kicks and the Cranes and Parents’ team won!
We thank everyone that turned up for our House Sports Day!
