The object of SeniorNet is to enable people over the age of 50 to use computers. Classes are held so people experience hands-on tuition in basic to advanced skills, also popular are discussion groups.
SeniorNet NS Tutors are all members and are therefore sympathetic to the needs of their fellow members. Classes, Tutorials & Discussions are 2 hours long and start either at 10am or 1:00pm, (with a coffee/tea/biscuit break) Mondays to Fridays. We do not have evening or weekend classes.
On the second Sunday of the month, from 10am to noon, there is a general meeting for all members. We usually have a speaker on computer related topics. Refreshments are always available. Gold coin donation appreciated. SeniorNet NS produces a monthly newsletter which is emailed out to members about a week before the relevant month.
The newsletter contains information catering for all levels of experience. A schedule of the coming Classes, Tutorials and Discussion Groups is also included.
Members are encouraged to contribute articles if they so wish. For a membership fee of $35 yearly (single) or $50 (double) you receive:
Monthly access to over twenty 2 hour discussion groups, and hands on tutorials for between $3 and $6, with other course options available.
Continual access to experienced people in most fields.
A monthly newsletter with helpful hints and web links.
Social enjoyment and mutual learning in a relaxed, informal environment.
