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.
Training sessions of one and a half hours are conducted on Tuesday - Thursdays in school terms. One-off courses are run on Fridays. Mondays are devoted to equipment maintenance, and meetings of Committee, Digipals, Writerpals, Geneapals and "Train the Trainer" sessions.
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.
Teaching 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. As well as our computing sessions and meetings,we arrange outings for our members.
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 Officer.
