St Stanislaus' College students have been lending a helping hand to students at feeder schools in a series of coding workshop.
Several students from the Stannies Robotics and Coding Club were at the Cathedral School last week teaching young students the basics of computer program coding.
They'll be running workshops for the Year 4 to 6 classes as part of their STEM outreach program.

“In the first term we'll be showing students how to write coding,” head of technical applied science, Shane Thurston, said.
“In the second term we’ll introduce robotics and how coding can be applied to it. In the third term we’ll be doing some STEM-based activities.
"These are important skills to learn because studies show that jobs in the future will be linked with learning the skills.”
Mr Thurston also explained what STEM is, saying that it is based on the idea of educating students in four key disciplines - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
The Robotics and Coding Club school visits program runs throughout the year with a number of sessions for the younger students to build on their experience throughout the school year.
