Apple Women Leading Learning: Coding Summer School

I was given the amazing opportunity to attend the Apple Women Leading Learning:
Coding Summer School in Sydney during the School holidays. I applied sometime during
March of 2017. I received confirmation that I had been accepted at the end of Term 3 of
2017. This was an exciting opportunity to find out more about coding with Swift Playgrounds.

I arrived in Sydney on Tuesday 16th January 2018. I met with my roommate Sylvie from
Ormiston Junior College in Auckland. Apparently there were only 4 women from NZ
attending and the rest were teachers from across Australia. That evening the entire group
met for the first time at the Apple Headquarters in Sydney. We also got the chance to
meet with the amazing women involved in organising this event. A few key people from
Apple delivered a presentation about Apple products and talked about how students are
being taught how to code and create apps. Later in the evening we all got the chance to
mix and mingle and meet all the other teachers who were invited to be part of this program.
