|Adriana during training|
Adriana joined the training at Stoke School in Nelson, along with 26 other families. Coming into her group of 9 was difficult for her, as she has agoraphobia, but her commitment to her two children - aged 7 and 14, helped her to overcome her fears.
She shares this about her Computers in Homes experience.
My daughter is busy showing me things she did at school each day. All her reports are shared by email and in the past, were sent to one of my mates who would show me. Now I can receive them myself and I can also make bookings for parent teacher interviews. You can’t ring up and make bookings because it has to be done on the internet and I had missed out on two interviews. Education is important and I need to know what is going on, how to help and now I can do that so much easier. I can follow my son’s progress on his website and help him and my daughter with their homework, research and assignments. It’s just amazing.
