Computer club has helped about 8280 students in past year
THE eighth annual general meeting of Tweed Area Computer Tuition has been held.
The club had another year of success, though it is difficult to measure because success means the student no longer comes, since they do not need us anymore.
Last year the computer club ran 690 classes, with an average of 12 students per class, which is a total of 8280 students.
If you relate that into lesson hours, it is about 1100 hours, and that does not include the hours of class preparation, administration, committee, maintenance, or our wonderful helpers' time.
The club is able to quickly respond to any changes and provide the necessary tuition. The computer club is located in the South Tweed Sports Club, 4 Minjungbal Drive, South Tweed, in a great air-conditioned environment.
Assistance is offered to people wishing to obtain their first computer, with courses from absolute beginner level to more advanced.
The tutors work on a voluntary basis and get fulfilment from passing on their knowledge.
People can join at any time, but if they require more direct information, they can attend the next "sign-on" day on Friday, August 28, at 11am-1pm.
