Term 2 has ended with a round of different natured people who i must say enjoyed doing the Computers in Homes program and looking forward to do whatever else they are able to do. We graduated 32 people all up in this term. Mauriceville School - 10 , Ko Te Aroha (morning) - 9, Afternoon - 6 , Evening - 7 all these graduates are from all different schools that are under our program. Out of the 32 we have 8 that signed up for internet 2 of them are on UFB.
Term 3 is underway with a class of 8 at Ko Te Aroha hopefully we can graduate them the last week of school for this term.
The lovely lady in red is our lovely Mayoress of Masterton Lyn Patterson who did all our presentations to our graduates.
Martha has organised 3 classes for Term One and they are all underway. Two are at Ko Te Aroha and one at Lakeview. These are the only places where we can offer Windows 7 training.
