Hutt Valley Mayor Ray Wallace endorses Computer in Homes

Through the DVD Launch of Petone Central, the Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace was captured by the mahi and the kaupapa that Computers in Homes stood for.  He spoke to me enquiring why his Hutt City Principals have not applied for this programme.
My reply:  "Computers in Homes is a magnificant programme, it is advertised by word of mouth.  We do not enter the schools trying to sell our programme.  We need schools with fire in their belly's and can see the benefits of this programme for the school whanau make the first step to enquire through our website"

So his initial reaction was "Can we organise a hui and invite all the principals from low decile schools to watch snippets of this DVD and let them decide if this is a great opportunity for their families as I think it is?  I am more then happy to endorse and host this presentation".

November 22nd 2012 I communicated with the Mayor Ray Wallace and Cn Margaret Willard to organise this presentation.

Because of the timing in the year, many schools were getting ready for the christmas period so were unavailable to attend the presentation.  However, we had 3 new principals attend, as well as 2 Computers in Homes Principals - Pomare School & Koraunui School to share their experiences as a CIH Principal.

The hui was a great success with 6 new inquiries for the Wellington - Hutt Region.
