2019 Another Successful Year

This has been our 3rd year at my house and all has been going well.

Last year we had to cancel our end of year Xmas Dinner as there were not enough people planning on attending to justify hiring the Okahau Hall and having a catered dinner. It was very disappointing but there you go.

This year we opted for a pot-luck dinner at my house and this worked out very well, everyone enjoyed themselves and are looking forward to a fresh start again in 2020.

Classes Start 2020

AGM 2019

We are holding our Annual General Meeting for 2019 on Thursday 18th July at 12.15 pm.

It will be at our Learning Centre, 43 Orrs Rd, Kaikohe.

Maybe we’ll see you there.

End of a successful year

After running SeniorNet from my house for a full year I can only say that is has been very successful and are now looking forward to 2018.

We finished 2017 with our annual end of year dinner on December 3rd at the Okaihau Community Hall. Other years we have had the dinner at Wildspur but that had been sold so this was a new venue for us and it was a good choice, everyone agreeing that the food was really good.

We start up again in 2018 with the Thursday class first as Waitangi Day falls on the Tuesday that we would normally start the Tuesday class.

Classes Start:

  • Tuesday 13th February 2018
  • Thursday 8th February 2018


A New Year and a New Start

At the end of last year we lost our Learning Centre room at Marino Pl. Fortunately it was right at the end of the year so we were able to complete our last learning session without interruption.

We have decided not to rent a dedicated space for our Learning Centre going forward. Instead have opted for a relocatable arrangement using laptop/notebook computers instead of a fixed desktop system.

We were originally going to look for a suitable church or community hall, or such, as a place to start 2017 in, but over the holiday break it has been decided to make use of my own house as the Learning Centre as all the necessary items are already here since it has become the SeniorNet Kaikohe office anyway.

New details – please note these down for future reference.

Address – 43 Orrs Rd, Kaikohe.
Phone – 021 026 90381  (phone or text)
Email –

Tuesday class starts at 10 am, February 7th.
Thursday classes at 10 am and 1 pm, February 9th.

If you have a laptop computer you will need to bring that to use. If you do not have a laptop computer then we do have a laptop computer that you can use in the Learning Centre.

Learning Centre is Moving

As we end our year of 2016 we have been advised by Te Hau Ora O Ngapuhi, from whom we sub-let our Learning Centre room, that because they are moving to another building there will be no suitable space for us.

In the meantime, over the Christmas and New Year Holiday period all our equipment will be in storage and we will be reorganizing and have a new location hopefully by early February in time to start our 2017 classes.
