Computers In Homes
CPF3 We have classes running (or starting shortly) in Opunake High School, Patea Area School and at the Hawera CTC
and with the DLC CIH Project at Raetihi Primary School, Raetihi, and Centennial Park School, Te Kuiti.
Another school recently pulled out and Christina has been looking for replacement numbers
Christina travelled to Te Kuiti, Taumarunui and Raetihi recently to visit the staff and families who will be involved in Computers in Homes. She also visited Taumarunui High School, TKKM Taumarunui and Taumarunui Primary School, with good results from all of them.
Stepping UP in Hawera is now open four days a week. Graham Nairn from Hawera has joined us as tutor on Thursday afternoons and Friday Morning.
Lisa Tangaroa will be taking some hours teaching Stepping UP once the current CIH classes finish there.
The Computer Basics Course continues to be the most popular.
Eltham Stepping UP is fairly slow to get going but Jane Gilbert has a steady number of students for her Stepping UP classes. With a bit of advertising we hope to get numbers up.
Karen has been asked to speak at Eltham Primary School to a class of children doing a project called Future Communities. They want to know how she helps in the community related to her work within Computers In Homes and Stepping UP.
