New Term

Courses and workshops for the 4thTerm began on Monday 16 October. See the web site www.kapiti.seniornet.co.nz. for the details and times and if you plan to attend a course then make sure that you enrol with  Elaine 04 905 3744 ( preferred option) as soon as possible.

If you have already completed a course and need some additional help to clarify a few points we are, as always, delighted to help at one of our How Do I…? workshop sessions, where the charge varies depending on how long we spend helping you (max $10 per hour).

Please Note: The email migration discussed below cannot be handled effectively at How Do I…? Workshops. Please enrol for the Vodafone Email Migration Workshop (a single session workshop costing a paltry $15) instead.
