June Newsletter from the Chairman

Courses Update
Introduction to Computers – we still have places for this course starting Wednesday 18th June. Tell your friends, this is the ideal course for beginners.

No Shows –  if you have signed up for a Course, but find out at the last moment that you are unable to attend a session, please phone the Learning Centre 04 299 0754 and leave a message. If we don’t know that you are not attending, we often delay the start expecting that you might be late.

Travelling from Waikanae to the Learning Centre – No car? Kuini Woolcock has the answer.

She takes the 9.00am train from Waikanae to Paraparaumu station where she boards the Number 250 bus. She then gets off at the bus stop on Raumati Road, just round the corner from Matai Road and then she walks along Matai Road to the Learning Centre. Kuini has proved that it is possible to get there on time for the 9.30am start for the course.

Keys to the Learning Centre – If you have been issued a key but no longer need it, please return it to Peter Thomson for distribution to new tutors.

Cyber threats – We are reminded once again to ‘be careful out there.’ Make sure that your anti-virus programme is in place and that when you receive an email from an unknown or questionable source, you delete it immediately.

Guest Speakers – Once again we were entertained at our last Q&A by an excellent speaker. Sarah Putt, an IT commentator gave us her take on the 5 trends in the development of IT which will be impacting on our lives sooner or later.

Reminder   Don’t forget the Regular Workshops including  How do I ..?, Q&A, iPad and Android. Come along, you will always learn something new, guaranteed.

And remember that the dates and times for everything we offer are on our Website right here.
