This is CIH Graduation Speech from a Graduate of one of our latest classes in Hawera
For those of you that do not know me, My name is Janey Hardy. I found out about the Computers in Homes course through a friend. I in turn told another friend and together with six other students we are all graduating today.
Firstly I would like to thank Ian Andrews and Christina Turner for there constant support and encouragement throughout these past 8 weeks.
Before I started this course I only knew one person apart from the coordinator Christina. But within the hours of 9:30-12 every Tues for 8 weeks I have not only learnt a lot about the basic operations of a computer, but I have made solid friendships with others in the same life situation as me.
Trio, Kylie, Charlie, Chardon, Chilli, Toia, Sandra and myself have gained more than just a simple certificate in computing. We have gained the necessary skills needed to pass on the knowledge to our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
So this course has not only been of benefit to ourselves but for our whole whanau.
