Congratulations on our Senior folks who graduated today on the Technology Course for Seniors Module 1.

It was a wonderful opportunity to see them grow in their understanding of how to use their smartphones, and laptops to navigate the Apps and Photos.

Take a look at some of their comments of the course below:

Elaine (Aged 68)
'"The course was an uncomplicated and practical introduction on how to navigate my smartphone and laptop. Gavin taught me how to maximise my smartphone and to download Apps for my phone, like: WhatsApp, Google Photos, Zoom and more. Every lesson was accompanied by detailed notes. This is a course for everyone regardless of ability and I completed the course feeling more confident and with a desire to still learn more. Thanks Gavin!"

Frank (Aged 70)
"Gavin is able to communicate his knowledge of IT with us "Oldies" in a simplified manner that we can understand and at a pace that takes the course attendees along for the journey. Those that may find it a bit difficult get extra attention. No note taking during the course is nessessary as Gavin provides comprehensive notes via email after each lesson. We do a lot of our learning by doing "Hands On" with his supervision to guide us. All in all a very worthwhile course."

Trish (Aged 74)
"This course covered all the basic areas for the use of a smartphone, tablets and laptops. We learnt how to use Apps on our smartphones, the technology and technical terminologies related to our devices. There is ample time to ask questionsand get help if you need it. I would recommend this course to anyone needing help to learn the basics of how to use their smartphone, tablet or laptop."

...........

Our next intake is in 2 weeks time, so why not contact me to put your name down and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in my home with a classroom style set up for the course with other likeminded folks.

Here is what the course covers

- Device Basics - Mobile Operating Systems AND Navigating the Smartphone and the iPhone (Buttons and Screens)

A saucy rebrand brings te reo Māori to Kiwi fridges and dinner tables

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Hi neighbours,

Are you looking for a new pantry staple? A Canterbury restaurateur has launched his own te reo Māori-branded tomato sauce after boycotting another for “bastardising” the language.

Fush owner Anton Matthews has teamed up with Barkers to produce Kīnaki Tomato after removing Watties from his Christchurch restaurant because the company poked fun at Māori place names in an advertising campaign.

Matthews, who has become well-known for championing the country’s indigenous language, is proud to have te reo Māori on sauces displayed on his tables.

When he went in search of a new sauce to accompany his kaimoana (fish) and chips in January, they picked a sauce they loved, and asked the Geraldine-based condiment producer if it could collaborate on a label.

“I’m really stoked that they’ve taken a chance on us.”
