'Community Computer Recycle' Scheme

Thursday, July 14, 2005

Thanks from COMREC

We have just received a letter of thanks from Graeme, Regional Coordinator of COMREC.

The total purpose of this letter is to thank you, your outstanding students and Grant High School for your generosity in providing three computers for use here at COMREC.

Currently we have 15 disabled clients with severe and multiple disabilities plus several with challenging behaviors on our programme. The programme includes cooking, swimming, horse riding, craft, outings, lifeskills training plus a course education in technology such as computing. Several of our clients have a specific goal to improve their skills in computing.

I would like to thank the two students who explained the computers for their patience and skill especially as they were communicating to two disabled young men.

Well that's OK Graeme. We are proud of our students too and we are happy to give away these computers. It is a good excuse for our students to learn in a constructive useful environment.

Doing this would not be possible without the support of our community though. The people that donate computers and money.
Thanks to those that support the scheme in this way.
