The S.C.C.C.C. Inc. was founded on 15th May 1998 when a steering committee was formed at a meeting called to gauge public interest on the viability of a club for Seniors to help other Seniors learn how to use a computer. The need for a club was immediately apparent by the number of people who attended on a very wet day. The club was registered and commenced official operations on 27th July 1998. Our aim is to provide an introduction; training; self-help assistance and advice on most aspects of computer use.
We offer a friendly service (within the scope of the expertise of the club) to anyone over 50 years of age to learn at his or her own pace. There is no pressure to keep up with others. All our facilitators are members of the club who give their time voluntarily and without payment.
Beginner sessions operate as groups in a room using a data projector and screen. Other groups are hands-on, using computers that run Microsoft Windows. More advanced groups are also provided for and these are advertised in the Newsletter or on our blog.
We also offer Apple Mac groups. We have a Beginners group a User group and an iPad group. We can also incorporate Apple people with Office for Mac into our PC Office classes as long as they have the later versions of Office for Mac.
Bookings must be made for all sessions. More information is available by contacting the club or by visiting our blog.
