It's been a few years since the programme was last run in the Wairoa District and we are excited and happy that the programme is back in our Community.
With 50 families to connect with and participate in the programme, 4 of our 11 District Schools have been selected with Computers in Homes visiting the Eastern Zone Schools first. A big shout out to Nick Chapman, Principal of Nuhaka School and Nicky O'Brien, Principal of Te Mahia School who have taken the mantle to kick start the programme.
10 families each from Nuhaka School and Te Mahia School will be undertaking their computer training in the beginning of December with training taking place at the local schools.

Next year we will be connecting with 10 families from Te Kura O Waikaremoana. This will be our second visit to the Urewera. Computer training for families will start in February.
And lastly, Wairoa College will see 20 of their school families participate in the programme in March next year. Computer training for families will be held at the CiH Training Centre at Tiaho School. We are looking forward to having the training centre in Wairoa back up and running again.
We look forward to engaging with the rest of the Community and getting around to the rest of our local District Schools.
