Hello to all SeniorNet members.

Would you like to create personalised Xmas Presents using your own photos.

Make greeting cards, Calendars, canvas prints, put your photos onto a Mug or make your own photo book about an event, family members, a holiday or a record of your achievements.  With Christmas coming up there are plenty of things you can make as gifts using your own photos.

 

 

The use of SNAPFISH is a suggestion.

Using their templates, adapting them to fit your wishes, you can design gifts/ mementoes quickly and for reasonable prices, specials are advertised regularly and these are particularly good value.

 

Your creation is emailed to Snapfish with payment and the item is posted back to you within a short space of time (less than a week) but don’t leave it too long with Christmas coming up it may take a little longer.

 

Tuesday 20th November @ 10am is our next meeting at Kelston Community Centre.

Grant Stevens is our speaker and he always has lots on interesting IT stuff to talk about.

As this is our last meeting for the year we will be having a Xmas morning tea afterwards so please come and join us.

 

 


 

Come and learn about Cyber Security and how you can protect yourself from Cyber Attacks and Data Breaches.

Michaela will be taking a Workshop in conjunction with Westpac Bank on Wednesday 28th November from 2pm – 3pm 

in our premises at the Henderson RSA.

The workshop will be free but you still need to book so phone Pam on 827 2156 (answerphone available)


 Help and Information Days

66 Railside Av Henderson   

These will be held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month between 10am and 12 noon.

So if you need help with your computer or something you have been shown and just can't remember how it was done. don't hesitate to call in and see us. Windows, Apple and Android systems covered. No appointments are necessary.   

To receive help you must be a current member. All we ask is a $5 donation.


 Regular Events

 1st Tuesday of the month: Committee meeting. 

                                                                                                                                                                                

3rd Tuesday of the month: SNWA meeting at Kelston Community Centre 10.00 am.

Seniornet West Auckland also offers the following classes on a regular basis if requested by three or more:

Word processing at various levels from basics to levels 1, 2 and 3, Libre Office, ipad, Excel.

For current members of SeniorNet we have new name cards that have a barcode printed on them that can be scanned when purchasing goods from Noel Leaming.

We get a percentage of the cost  of goods sold through this company which goes towards running SeniorNet around the country. We therefore need to make sure that every sale is charged as such and not just put on the Gold Card which has been happening.  

We will have the cards at the Learning Centre in the Henderson RSA and they can be picked up on our Help Days on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. 

SeniorNet is not currently getting funding from the Government so your support with this is very much appreciated.

 


If you would like to do a refresher on any of our courses they are $10 cheaper than the original one, you just need to bring your original notes with you. 

Let Pam know (09- 827 2156) and she will advise you of a date.
