Coding for Grade Ones included in private schools curriculum

Rallim Prep has taken a new approach to education that is tailor-made for the modern learner to prepare them for the future and the technical world.

Principal of Rallim Prep, Colleen Miller, says coding has become one of the official languages in South Africa today and the school has taken an innovative and unique modern learning model that includes coding in its curriculum.

They have taken a stance that will excel and disrupt the current education model.

We came up with a concept of redesigning education which may sound bold but we believe it is necessary.

Colleen Miller, Principal of Rallim Prep

When a child enters Rallim Prep, they will see, hear and feel something different in order to redesign.
