We Recycle!!


Is it a door stop?? Is it a computer??

 Well, needing a sign to say We Are Here!! and having a few old hard drives around the place... I decided to use one of the old computers for a sign. Now I'm on the look out for a larger one as I need one for the footpath. (I've seen one in the techs room, but I think I better ask him first)
Are these old muesli bar boxes?? Are they the boxes that hold our modules??

These boxes are just the right size to fit our Stepping Up modules in!!!

lets Step it Up ;)


The Hawera CTC is open for Stepping UP!

Christina is running Stepping Up on Tuesdays and Wednesday and is so busy that she rarely manages a lunch break.

Christina said "I had a 86 yr old lady come in that had never touched a computer. She did  mouse exercises for which I gave  her a certificate. She was so pleased (with receiving a certificate) that she was going to frame it".

Having the CTC in a main shopping area is proving to be a bonus as people can see we are open whilst they are in town, and if they have time they can drop in to complete a module,  or otherwise set up a time with Christina when it is more convenient to them.

Eltham will be opening shortly with Karen on Fridays and  new tutor Jane on Tuesdays.

In the news, South Taranaki Star Feb 24 2011

This may be a little hard to read but the story from the newspaper cutting below is about how Eltham acknowledge triple success with presentations for the town and its people who have made their mark on the national stage. 
  1. Kaponga's Shirley Hazlewood who was named a semi-finalist in the Kiwibanks New Zealander of the Year Awards.
  2. The Eltham Community Development group received the runner up plaque for the Best Professional Mural 2010 at the Resene Mural Masterpieces 2010 Competition.
  3. Eltham had its own plaque for being semi-finalist for Community of the year Awards. Significant  events that went towards Eltham being a semi-finalist were 125th Jubilee, filming of Predicament, the downhill cheese race, and the world record breaking cheese scone, walkway improvements, and the $300,000 grant for Computers In Homes.
