Today we are living in an ever and fast changing digital world that requires us to equip our children with the right tools and skills to prepare them for this global technological tsunami. As technology is evolving faster than ever & the pressure to keep up to date is immense, we don’t mean by having the latest Iphone or trending on TikTock, but knowing how this technology is built and works, from an early age, will allow children to become thinkers and creators instead of just consumers and confident interacting with it safely & securely.
The Lingo Club uses a unique and exclusive coding program, designed and created by a team of experienced and passionate Coders, specifically to inspire children to learn fundamental computing concepts, theories and programming languages, in a progressive manner, using real life coding languages.
Studies show, most future jobs will require some basic understanding of these skills.
The below platforms/languages are considered as some of the best created digital languages so far. The Lingo Club uses them in a fun way to explain the simplicity of coding to children.
Please watch the video below to understand why coding is an important skill for our children's future.

Invermay primary school/Ballarat:
The CODING CLUB has provided Invermay PS students with an opportunity to explore and
extend their digital literacy beyond traditional school hours.
CODING CLUB Director and Instructor, Driss Regague, was very accommodating in building
an after-school program to suit the needs of our students and school community. He
regularly checked in with both myself and his instructional support staff, to maintain the
momentum of both staff and students.

Mudgeeraba State School/ Gold Coast:
The Lingo Club is the perfect partner for schools who are looking towards developing
21 st century learners. We have been associated with Driss and his team for two years and
have relished this unique experience. Students of all ages are able to come together and
participate at their own pace in a supportive environment. Students acquire skills
progressively whilst gaining the knowledge and understanding fundamental to
programming using digital languages. The course is sequential and like nothing else offered
by any other coding course. The curriculum is aligned beautifully to the proficiencies
embedded in Digital technologies and is a great way to ensure that students are gaining
fundamental computational skills. Learning lifts to another dimension when kids are
engaged in the course content provided by the coding club.
