We visited Ramsden Hall school again today to unveil to the press the first coded implementation of the Anti-Bullying App designed by the school.
Both the Colchester Gazette and BBC Look East were invited. Unfortunately the BBC couldn’t make it on this occasion be are keen to follow up the story that first grabbed our attention on their evening news program a couple of months ago.
The pupils hope their Diana Award competition winning mobile phone app for anonymous reporting of bullying will be a national success and Coderus are committed to making that happen.
Mark Thomas, Coderus managing director, said: “We’re really pleased to be working with the student team and are looking forward to helping to inspire this new generation of developers in the process.
“The boys will be actively involved in this project from the design and functionality to actually coding sections and building the app. This sits well with the national curriculum and everything they’re being taught in school at the moment. We’re delighted to be able to mentor them in this way.
“We’ll be working to keep the fundamentals of the students’ original plans in place, bringing an app to life that is, essentially, designed by kids, for kids.”
Detailed coverage can also be found in the East Anglian Daily Times, Ipswich Star and the Colchester Gazette amongst other local papers.
