Hello everyone, 

SeniorNet Kapiti Honour the late Queen Elizabeth II

SeniorNet Kapiti Inc., among other charitable organisation’s, wish to honour the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Elizabeth II, had an extraordinary reign, which has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch, undertaking many historic overseas visits. Known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service, she has been an important figurehead for the UK and the Commonwealth during times of enormous social change.

We welcome King Charles III, who immediately succeeded his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. Our condolences to the Royal family for their loss.

As you may have received your invitation to celebrate SeniorNet Kapiti 25th Anniversary on 14 September. Please remember to pop this date into your calendar and, see below for more…..

SeniorNet Kapiti held Open Days on Tuesday 26 July at Coastlands, followed by a session on Saturday 30 July, at the Learning Centre. Thank you to all those people who came along to either support SeniorNet Kapiti or to join and start their digital learning path.

OE! Over the last month my grandchildren were in Turkey, Belgium and Paris. Which has given our grandchildren even more energy to travel further afield! Well, this time they are in Marseilles, what a trip they are having! We are still enjoying their summaries of the adventure they are on. Also the great photos they are sharing ‘online’, so no need to email them these days!

Remember if you’re not sure how to set up an online chat, or Facetime, just let SeniorNet Kapiti know, so we can help get you started.

From the Chair

As I sit down to write to you, my hands are still shaking after watching another “come from behind” win by Team New Zealand in the Americas Cup. Whether you’re passionately following the racing or just watching it out the corner of your eye, you won’t be able to miss the astounding technology being used by the broadcast organisation. How they manage to map the course onto the moving pictures shot from moving helicopters and boats as well as merge all that technical information from multiple boats onto the screen I’ll never quite comprehend. We certainly couldn’t have managed anything like it in my working days – technology have come a long way in a very short time!

From the Chair

It’s only been a couple of weeks since I last wrote to you from the Chair but a lot has happened at SeniorNet Kapiti since then…

Our Open Days were a huge success with plenty of interest from passers by at Coastlands and a steady stream of new members visiting the Learning Centre on the Saturday. Our thanks go to Westpac, one of our national sponsors, for allowing us to sit outside their premises all day – it’s a great people-watching spot as well as an excellent location to draw people’s attention to all the ways SeniorNet might help them on their digital learning journey.

My thanks also to the Committee Members and Tutors who sat on the desk at Coastlands fielding all sorts of questions and queries about SeniorNet as well as signing people up to join. The good news for us is that our classes are filling fast for Term 1 but the bad news for you is that if you want to attend a Course or Workshop, you need to contact Elaine soon to avoid missing out.
