On 4 December 38 Computers in Homes families from Shirley Primary, Te Kura Whakapumau, Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Te Whanau Tahi plus Te Puna Oranga and Rehua Marae graduated at Rehua Marae in St Albans. Whaea May, a teacher from Te Whanau Tahi, responded to the karanga from our host, and Karaitiana Taiuru, of our Steering Group, was our speaker. Councilor Glenn Livingstone was present, alongside our Steering Group member Pauline Cotter, who has also been newly appointed as a Councilor. This was a very special event, and one that will certainly be well remembered by all participants.
A wonderful Stepping Up graduation was also held at Hagley College for 26 Bhutanese Refugee Computers in Homes graduates on 3 December. Most have all completed over 6 steps, with Tula Ram Chettri successfully continued on as their trainer.
