We are excited to introduce a new online coding program called We have been given this unique learning opportunity with thanks from a Richmond Parent. This learning space allows students to be part of a growing community of coders using a relatively new coding application. RoboGarden provides integrated development environments for young learners to empower their ability to innovate and learn computer science concepts in a very easy, enjoyable way.

RAZ Kids

Grades Kindergarten to Grade 4 students have access to RAZ kids, a levelled reading program that allows students to practice their reading at home.
