We have been lucky enough to have Amanda Ford work with children across our school for just over 4 years. Amanda is a former parent in the school and works at West Of Scotland University and Glasgow Caledonian University teaching coding and games design as part of her studies for her PHd. She is an accredited Microsoft Innovation Education Expert and has worked tirelessly in our school to run a computer club as well as sometimes help with whole classes if a teacher has requested help with technology.
As Amanda surpassed 100 hours of coding with children in Royston PS, Head Teacher Jane McShane felt a surprise was well deserved. On Friday 2nd June, at her regular computing after-school club, Amanda was surprised with a party attended by all staff and many of the children who have attended her clubs throughout the 4 years. Amanda was presented with a bouquet of flowers in recognition of our thanks for her hard work over the last four years.
