Senior graduates surf the web

Kopu Tumutoa (left), Turua Peter (centre) and Ruhau Tamahunu are three of the latest computer whizzes in the Cook Islands.

The trio are some of the 19 senior citizens who graduated from a free training course that focused on computers, internet and email.

Organised by the Office of the Prime Minister and tutored by Mii Manuela, the course is available to anybody 50 years old or above who has access to a computer on a regular basis.

The group was honoured for its achievements at a function held at the University of the South Pacific (USP) last month.

Each of the 19 representatives received their certificates before baskets of food and a paddle made by Tamahunu were gifted to Manuela in a sign of appreciation for the tutor’s dedication.

The graduates were the last group for 2012, with the next intake scheduled to take place early next year.
