The Space Within

When I arrived to live on Bribie Island at the start of 1998, I decided to put all my management teaching notes on the Net for anyone to use - there was no point in throwing them away and I was not likely to be doing any more permanent management teaching. I was the Coordinator of the local Community Visitors' Scheme for a couple of years and, during that time, had a page for them. Now I am retired again and spend my time teaching seniors and others how to use computers - free lessons for Bongaree Neighbourhood Watch.

We have formed a Bribie Island Seniors' Computer Club - over 300 members in 4 months! Having applied for incorporation for Bongaree NHW, we then applied to the Quensland State Government's Gambling Community Benefit Fund for $17,000 which was approved. We now have 8 computers, a laptop and a digital camera; we borrow a data projector from Bribie Island State High School for presentations at our monthly meeting and elsewhere; we have 7 special interest groups; and we have just asked two nursing homes if we can assist them by running computer classes for residents. Currently, we operate 11 sessions a week for beginners and others.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.

The Space Within

Thirty spokes share the wheel's hub;
It is the centre hole that makes it useful.

Shape clay into a vessel;
It is the space within that makes it useful.
