Seniornet South is a voluntary organisation based on an American model, with the intentions of assisting and encouraging people of the third age to learn to become competent in the use of computers.
Seniornet South is located in the old WEA building at 100 Esk Street, Invercargill. This building has recently been remodelled which provides members with warm and well lit environment in which to work. Nine modern computers are available for the use of students and a range of programs give a good coverage of those commonly in use today. Operating systems include Microsoft XP and Vista and versions of Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007 are also available for use.
A range of class times are available (for more information click on the classes link) and classes are usually of a two hour duration with a break for a 'cuppa' in the middle. Experience has shown that a number of students enjoy the social interaction with other members as much as taking part in the learning process. Classes run for periods of four and eight weeks depending on the subject chosen.
