Hello everyone, 

This is SeniorNet Kapiti’s first newsletter for the year and what a start to the year! We have been busy finalising Term 1 timetable and have started to draft Term 2!

From the Chair

We’ve started Term 3 with a hiss and a roar! Most classes are full or close to it which is always pleasing to the Committee and all our Tutors. It’s great for us to see that our members are finding something in our programme that they can learn and it’s our pleasure to be able to offer the number of classes and workshops that we do.

SeniorNet Kapiti was entered into the Wellington Airport Community Awards, and proudly came away with a Highly Commended award for Education & Child/Youth Development – this is due to the excellent work by our team of volunteers (Committee & Tutors).  The nomination described how our Learning Centre moved to online courses and workshops during lockdown to ensure we could engage with our members, and how we now continue that engagement at the Learning Centre.

The certificate is hanging on the Learning Centre wall

Newsletter July 2021

It’s with great pleasure that we introduce our new ChairPerson, Sue Connor.

Congratulations Sue on your appointment and we wish you every success running our organisation.

From the Chair

This will be my first “From the Chair” as it’s my first Chairpersonship, confirmed at the AGM last month. I am very grateful to the Committee who have ‘re-signed up’ for this year and of course to the Immediate Past Chairperson Peter Bunkall, who is member of the incoming Committee.  I am truly humbled by the help and assistance that this very experienced team can offer not only me but all of our members too.

I am looking forward to my time as Chairperson – with the current status of COVID-19, I believe we have the policies in place to act accordingly in everyone’s best interest and our members health is ‘front and centre’ for each of us. At times, things will be complicated and challenging but the team I have around me, supporting the ‘Chair’ are an amazing group of people.

I genuinely would like to thank the Committee for what we are about to do together and what we have achieved in the past.

Chair, SeniorNet Kapiti Inc.
