Annual Report: Eastern Bay of Plenty has graduated 56 whānau in 2015-16. An extreme highlight is the participation of 24 whānau from Te Whaiti and Minginui communities.

Working alongside rural internet provider Wifi Connect Ltd, Te Kura Toitu o Te Whaiti-nui-a-Toi and Te Runanga o Ngati Whare, our Computer in Homes programme is now able to provide subsided internet and access to a much wider sector of the community.

High demand for digital literacy

Working in partnership with Eastbay REAP, the Computers in Homes programme is delivered in response to community, hapū and schools’ needs. The 50 places allocated for the 2016-2017 have already been assigned as a result of the high need for digital support by our families. Thank you to the CiH steering group and the ACE in schools programme for their continuing support and direction.

Forty-three learners are completing the digital pathway of EqualSkills and Intro to ICDL. Learners come from Murupara, Kawerau and Whakatane areas.

Michelle’s story

Michelle Kaipara from Kawerau has four children attending Kawerau schools. After spending many years recovering from a serious illness, the Computer in Homes programme played a big part in reconnecting Michelle with her community, her children’s schooling and increasing her opportunities for further learning.
