20th October 2013

Kia ora everyone Term 3 finished on a high even though it was a small class of 5 but that was okay they all graduated which was held at Ko Te Aroha straight after their last class so they all received their computers and certificates now they want to move on to do Stepping Up.
We also had Adult Learners week before we finished which 5 of our Stepping Up people received their Stepping Up Certificates for the amount of modules they had done and a special award was given to one of my CIH ladies for the contribution she gave to her own Pacific Island Community by bringing them onboard to do the CIH program which has helped them out in  a lot of ways.

Term 2 2013

This is our end of Term 2 everything went really well. 2 Graduations one at Lakeview where we had 16 and the other one at our new School MPS (Masterton Primary School) where we had 10, so 25 received computers along with their USB's and Parent Packs and also I have had 16 sign up for the internet majority of them all on on Naked Broadband.
Our Stepping up program is also going well. We have put through 2 people for Adult Learners Award which also they will receive their Stepping Up Certificate. 2 people have done 11 Digital Steps which is cool considering one of them is a granddad and father didn't know what the heck he was doing he was quite scared by it when he started.
Our Tutor Lisa Gray has just done her diagnostics on Kiwi Skills now she just has the Test to do. Way to go Lisa.

Stepping Up still going so thats okay for now. By Term 4 hopefully we will have our other 2 new schools on board.

This term has been good for both classes CIH program and Stepping Up. The CIH classes from Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning along with the Stepping Up Program will graduate 18th April @ 6pm Lakeview School Library.We have 10 for CIH and 7 for Stepping Up.
