New Schools for 2014-2015

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.

I would also like to welcome Newtown School who will begin training on Tuesday 20th April 2015.  Newtown school was one of the first to participate in Computers in Homes.  Mark Brown (Principal) previous school Victory School (Nelson) participated in the programme.  So we are very fortunate to have a school who not only has staff who have seen the benefits CiH has had on their families, but also to have a Principal who hosted the programme in his previous school is an add bonus.  I am excited to see the possibilities CiH & Newtown School can create for the school families.


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.
