Windows 10 Upgrade

Win 10 BackgroundHave you upgraded to Windows 10 yet or are you still a little nervous about the process – why not come and discuss it with the experts on the Open Days. We’ve upgraded all the computers in The Learning Centre to Windows 10 without incident so we can now offer our members Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 to use during our courses. We are holding Windows 10 Introduction Courses this term so you can see the Upgrade Process for yourself as well as get some hand’s-on practice with Windows 10 on our Learning Centre PCs. We are also in the process of upgrading all our courses to run on Windows 10.


We are always on the lookout for more tutors so why not contact Kuini at here or come along to one of the open days and discuss with other tutors who will be there.   Neighbourly

We have recently joined as a Community Organization and will be using it to communicate with the wider Kapiti Community. If you haven’t already joined  at why not sign up so you can see what we’re saying to your neighbours about SeniorNet.
