Stanborough School student, Trisha Ahir took part in the Code Ninja scheme which was held at Applecroft School in Welwyn Garden City.
The scheme, which was held at the school on Sunday, May 9, allows students to build their knowledge and skills through its belt scheme. The students can achieve belts from White Belt, which are the fundamentals (beginners), to Black Belt (advanced programming). By Black Belt, students can successfully code their own app.
Trisha said: "It is a great learning opportunity as you get to learn a new language which is suitable for the digital world we live in.
"Code Ninjas has a kind, helpful, fun and welcoming environment with Senseis to help you all the way. I am currently close to finishing Orange Belt.

"Code Ninjas helps teach students to computationally and logically think through different problems, which is key to all school subjects. I can see the benefit that each belt stage has through all key stages, right up to A-level."
The coding studio is ran by Pradip and Bhavna Patel, who decided to take things into their own hands after struggling to find an affordable and local coding camp for their own children.
Mrs John, headteacher at Stanborough School said: "We are very proud of Trisha and her involvement with the Code Ninja project. It is a fantastic scheme which brings a variety of benefits for students, not just in the areas of computers and programming. We wish her every success with her journey to becoming a Black Belt!"
