Nuhaka School

Kia Ora Tatou

Congratulations to those families who participated with Computers in Homes. There was never a dull moment during training with all the laughter and learning that went on. It was great to see families helping each other and appreciating that everyones experience with computers was different to their own.

The group applied their photography skills in producing a Community video of the resources and services that are available to the Community of Nuhaka. Identifying the local Networks gave families a greater appreciation in supporting the growth of their Community. Take a bow everyone for accomplishing this task within a short period of time.

Check out a quick movie families created during computer training by families where you can view Community photos and services available in Nuhaka.

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.
