ComputerPals Mission

Our mission is to educate seniors in the use of computers and other technology 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.


ComputerPals Training Courses, Special Interest Groups, and Social Activities

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 occasionally run on Fridays. Every Monday morning is a closed session devoted to equipment maintenance. Monday afternoons host meetings of Committee, "Train the Trainer" sessions and our Special Interest Groups(see the calendar link [above] for actual times and dates) - DigiPals (Digital Photography), WriterPals (Creative Writing), and MemoryPals (preserve your memories).

TabPals (tablets and phones) meet on a Friday(Apple iPads/iPhones at 11am; and Android system Tablets/phones at 1pm.

As well as our computing sessions and meetings, we arrange Social Outings (approximately one per month) and free (once a Term) Morning Teas (which is also a General Meeting) with excellent Guest Speakers for our members and guests. We have developed training courses for our Senior Citizens so that they can learn about computers and technology 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.
