2015 has begun with a roaring start as Computers in Homes welcomes the participation of 4 schools for the 2014-2015 period.
This period will see Computers in Homes working with schools in the Wellington CBD areas.
Beginning in Term 2, I would like to welcome back Berhampore School with their second intake. Berhampore School has graduated 14 families in 2012. 3 years on, we are able to offer another intake for Berhampore School. They begin their first session on Tuesday 28th April 2015.
Welcome to Linden School (Tawa). I am happy to be working in this school in collaboration with the Porirua E-Learning Director & Porirua Computers in Homes Regional Coordinator - Tim Davies-Colley. Linden School has a new principal Gaylene Hill who I am excited to work with so that the families of Linden School may experience the benefits CiH has to offer. Linden will begin their first class on Thursday 30th April 2015.
We will also be working with St Anne's School (Newtown). Thank you Doreen O'Sullivan for allowing Computers in Homes into your school. The dates are yet to be set for the school... so watch this space.
Last but not least, I am in the planning stages with Celeste Hastings (principal) on how we can provide CiH in Holy Cross School. Again watch this space.
There is a lot of exciting things happening for the Wellington Schools!
Also, I would like to thank Ministers Parata and Kaye for announcing Computers in Homes funding will be extended in 2015-16 to support another 1500 families.
