Computers in Homes Waikato has recently celebrated two graduations. Meremere School just put their second lot of students through the programme with Karen Thompson returning as their passionate and committed trainer. This was a small group but they showed real commitment to the programme.
The second graduation was held in Ngaruawahia at the local Community House. Computers in Homes Waikato was contacted by a young mother in Ngaruawahia, Elysia, who had heard about the programme. She was very keen to see this programme delivered in her community as she knew of many families who would benefit from participating in Computers in Homes.
As a result of the contact from Elysia, the Regional Coordinator (Holly Snape) spoke to the community house in Ngaruawahia. They have strong links into the community and were very keen to make this programme available locally. Fifteen local families graduated from Computers in Homes in Ngaruawahia. Computers in Homes Waikato would like to thank the Ngaruawahia Community House for the use of their facilities and to thank Elysia for being a strong voice for her community.
