A Taste of the Magic of Excel - SeniorNet Mangawhai

A Taste of the Magic of Excel
Computer learning in 2 hour learning sessions

SeniorNet Mangawhai is introducing the first of our modules – ‘A Taste of the Magic of Excel’ on Wednesday 31 October at 12 noon.  

‘A Taste of the Magic of Excel’ is an introduction to Excel spreadsheets: understanding the structure; how to input data/formulas into a workbook and how to create charts.   The module is broken into several parts, each building on the step before and demonstrated first on the big screen.   The student watches and is then given a set of notes for the specific task that has been shown before going to a computer to repeat the exercise they have just observed. The process is repeated for each part of the module during the 2 hour session (with tutor/s on hand to assist).

The minimum requirement for this module is competence in basic computer skills.

If you are interested in attending this session please contact Tony Cox on 431 2269 to register.     Cost is $10 for members ($15 for non-members).

Venue: Learning Centre, 1960 State Highway 1, (opposite the Cheese Shop) Kaiwaka.

Our ever changing town



Anyone coming into Maungaturoto over the last few months may have noticed the face of our township is changing. The Maungaturoto Beautification Project is in full swing getting geared up for our 150th Celebrations on 1st - 3rd November 2013. I've watched the transformation taking place over a very short period of time. All done by volunteers. There's some fantastic images of the project's progress on the website and on the Maungaturoto Facebook page.

Be sure to check out the website and the Facebook page it's worth a look. And they're always looking for a helping hand. So if you have the time please volunteer and help out with this very worthwhile and fantastic project.
