Our mission is to educate seniors in the use of computers as a way of enriching their lives and making them more self-reliant.
We bridge the generation gap and assist seniors to find ways to benefit the community through their collective experience and knowledge.
Classes are conducted on Tuesday - Thursdays in school terms. They are generally of one and a half hours (sometimes over 5 weeks, or 3 hour courses, one-off courses may also run on Fridays. Every Monday morning is a closed session devoted to equipment maintenance. Monday afternoons host meetings of Committee, "Train the Trainer" sessions, or our special interest groups - Digipals, Writerpals, Geneapals. Tabpals meet on a Friday afternoon (see the calendar for actual times and dates).
As well as our computing sessions and meetings, we arrange social outings for our members.
We have developed training courses for our Senior Citizens so that they can learn about computers without feeling under pressure to keep up with the "youngsters". Membership is open to Novocastrian residents over the age of 55 years, as well as residents of nearby Local Council areas.
Tutoring is provided by a band of volunteers, prepared to share their knowledge and give their time, so that we can provide training at minimum cost.
Being a member of ASCCA ( Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association ), we have access to ASCCA's resources and links to other Seniors' Computing Clubs throughout Australia.
If you would like to become involved as a tutor, or if you know someone who has the skills but is not yet a member, please contact our Education Team.
