The final graduation for 2014 took place in Auckland at the RYAN Centre for 16 families with refugee background. They had come from countries of conflict like Iraq, Palestine, Syria, Burma, Afghanistan, the Congo and Somalia. Their graduation was celebrated with family and friends, along with the Interpreters, Tutor Elfadil, Family Liaison Patrick, Technician Hameed, Amanda from Red Cross, Parvathi from Ministry of Education and RYAN Centre Manager Dr Arif Saeid. The whole team who makes this happen was there to support, encourage and lead on to the next steps. Certificates were handed out by Amanda Aye and Di Daniels and it was not long before many of us women were discussing our families, our views on the world (and our shoes!).
We warmly congratulate all the parents who took time to attend training this year from around the country and hope visitors to this blog will enjoy sharing in the beautiful faces of our Computers in Homes graduate families. Di and Briar wish everyone all the best for the holiday season, for Christmas and New Year. See you back in February 2015.
