Computer Pals Turramurra

Training Seniors in using Computers

Computer Pals for Seniors Turramurra, Inc ( CPST ) is one of many similar voluntary community organisations established throughout Australia to assist seniors to become familiar with the use and benefits of computers in modern society.

The Club has won several State and National community service awards, including an International Year of Volunteers award, a State Council of the Aging Award for Good Practice and a Premier’s Community Award.

Established in 2000, CPST has achieved remarkable growth in membership and is generally recognised by Ku-ring-gai Council as one of the most successful voluntary seniors’ groups on the upper North Shore of Sydney.

IMGP4138We have enrolled nearly 1800 members.  The club is run totally by volunteers, and most of our tutors have progressed through our courses and are therefore fully aware of the needs and background of our members.

 If you are interested in joining the Club,then further information is available from the Club Secretary, Margaret Ball by email tcpssec@hotkey.net.au or you can fill in our Application form to apply to become a member.


How the Club Works

 

The CPST Committee is elected annually at the Annual General Meeting which is held in April. The Committee meets regularly on the third Thursday of each month and a General Meeting of the members is held on the fourth Thursday of the month. Tea and coffee are provided free at the conclusion of each meeting.


The Club holds a Help Session on the 2nd Thursday of each month, from 2 – 4 pm, where a number of tutors are available to assist with any computing problems.

The Club Committee comprises the following members:


President: Ken Doyle

Vice President: Norma Kelly

Secretary: Margaret Ball

Treasurer/Public Officer: Pat Bohr

Committee:  John Richardson

       Stella Maude
       Dean Simes
       Dorothy Soper  

                 

                      

 

Guest Speakers

 

The Club endeavours to invite a Guest Speaker to each of its monthly General Meetings. Speakers usually address the meeting for between 30 to 45 minutes following consideration of the Club’s general business.

 

 

Guest speakers generally focus on computer related issues, including hardware, software developments and other interesting topics.. The Club has been fortunate to attract local schools to participate in providing students as occasional speakers on such issues as Myspace, Facebook, Youtube, etc

 

 

Club Newsletter

 

CPST forwards bi-monthly newsletters to members by email or post. The newsletters detail Club activities, coming events, guest speakers at monthly General Meetings and suggestions for improving computing skills.
