Wairoa College

Congratulations to all the families of Wairoa College who recently graduated on the 18th of July 2008. We would like to thank Mr Brian Stubbings and the staff of Wairoa College for allowing our project to be held in the T Block ICT Room.

Training was undertaken in two streams with families opting between day or evening training sessions. This was most useful as we were able to accommodate working and travelling families.

A diverse range of families with computer knowledge and a few families with absolutely no computer knowledge at all. There were families who were currently on computer training courses that attended, we thank those families for their evaluation and comments especially about how informative and interesting our training sessions were.

100% for training attendances, this was evident because families kept asking for more training... We wil be offering families extended time for post training and look forward to catching up with everyone again.

Computer Training around the Schools

Congratulations to the families of Frasertown School who graduated on the 11th of July 2008.

Thanks to Mrs Jenny Ratcliffe for supporting Computers in Homes Wairoa project and making yourself available to attend, mix and mingle with the parents and children during computer training.

Thanks to the families for top mark attendance... Your attendance reflected in your computer learning... There was so much to absorb and everyone coped really well.

The kids... I love it when the families bring their children along... I encourage the kids to learn and to teach their parents. Georgina Tipuna, aka "The Librarian", you did a great job showing Dad how to use the computer, i'm sure he was very impressed with your skills. Danielle Roberts, I was very impressed with your learning, attitude and behaviour, a big thank you to your Mum Maria for putting her hand up as the Project Buddy/Mentor to assist all the families.

To the rest of the families, it was great to meet you all and I hope to hear the good learning stories during post training.

Congratulations to the families of Kotemaori School who graduated on the 18th of May 2008.

Kotemaori School is approximately 55 kms South of Wairoa with a roll of less than 30 children.

A big thanks to all the families who participated especially to those who gave computer support to others with less computer knowledge. Computer training took place over a 7 week period, thanks to Simon and the BOT for keeping our family PCs safe and secure during the training period.

To Hana, Charmaigne and Len, we hope that your computer training has been put to good use. We look forward to hearing all the good stories from yourselves and the rest of the families during post computer training.
