Computers In Homes

Congratulations to our 10 whānau who have completed their first session of Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō Computers in Homes and thanks to our facilitator Lynne Owen. Fantastic to see whānau giving it a go! The training runs for 10 weeks throughout June and July 2015, and we are sure that course members will all be much more confident and skilled by the end of the 10 week course.

It is a great opportunity and “tumeke” to see the smiles of achievement as we move along.
