As 2013 comes to a close I would like to express my appreciation to all those involved in supporting Computers in Homes in the Nelson/Marlborough region. We have a successful team of Cathy-Ann and Carmen based at the host school, Bohally Intermediate, Blenheim who saw the completion of a programme comprising of families from various schools from their district and who are continuing to give support to their families. Thank you for all your hard work and the effort you have put in. And also congratulations to all those participating families who have gained so much learning, have grown in their ability to use their computers and are now able to support their children's education in new ways.
Within the Nelson area we already have a team based at Victory School who have been sharing their skills and knowledge and supporting others in their learning. Thanks Tania and Dianne, and Tim for your Tech support.
We have some new teams forming in the Nelson region as well with two new host schools starting Computers in Homes programmes when the new school year begins in February 2014. There is still time for any interested families to contact either of the host schools - Auckland Point School in Nelson or Parklands School in Motueka. They are generously offering to host families from other schools who are eligible. Nelson Central, Victory and Lower Moutere Schools have already taken up this generous offer. So if you have school age children, don't have a computer or the internet at home, and would like some training and the opportunity to take home a reconditioned computer, please contact myself or these schools and take advantage of this amazing programme. The tutors and techs are gearing up for the New Year and the organisers Kate and Sonya have been doing an amazing job.
Well wishes to you all - for a safe and happy festive season and see you in the New Year!!
