Auckland Regional Update....


A new Regional Coordinator has been appointed for Auckland. We welcome Cara Sefuiva who joins us from Computers in Homes Tokoroa. Here is Cara at the launch of CPF3 in Waikato 2009, in blue in the centre, when Hon Tariana Turia spoke about digital whanau benefiting from Computers in Homes. Cara has visited all the CIH schools in Auckland and commented on the warmth and great feeling of the schools and their staff. This week Cara will be attending training sessions at Rosebank School and Manurewa High to meet parents and tutors.

Rosebank School pod where one class of parents train on their own machines. A massive 31 parents have begun training with tutor Michelle Hudson, assisted by ICT Lead teacher Lavinia Robyns, and numerous mentors who donate their time to translate and assist, including co-chair of the Auckland Steering Group, Joce Williams.

A Manurewa training suite where another epic venture of 3 classes with 27 families have begun with tutors Saubree Edinberry and Tim Randle.

Te Kura Maori O Nga Tapuwae begin any day with their 2nd intake of around 10 whanau, thanks to the energy and commitment of ICT teacher Lauren Pompey.

Kia ora ra tatau all the fabulous Auckland schools, principals and staff who support the kaupapa of raising the digital literacy of Auckland parents and their children. Tumeke!
