April has been a busy month with the last Computers in Homes sessions being held, organising internet providers and getting set up at home to take newly reconditioned computers home after Graduation.
We have held Graduations at Parklands School in Motueka and at Auckland Point School in Nelson. Congratulations to all those families for taking the opportunity for themselves, their families and their children's education to commit to the 20 hours training. It was wonderful to share and celebrate your achievements with you and your family members.

It is now time for us to check over the computers for families who trained at Bohally Intermediate in 2013. The computers have had a 12 month warranty which is about to expire. We want to ensure the computers are running the best they can before the responsibility for their care is placed totally in families hands. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting families recently, when Carmen and I visited over the weekend to start this WOF process. Carmen will continue to contact families to organise times for the rest of the computer checks.
