Census 2018 & SeniorNet


The next census is just around the corner. On 6 March 2018, you'll be asked to do your part to build a snapshot of the people and places that make up New Zealand.

This time around, the census is going online and SeniorNet and Stats NZ are teaming up to help. Between Wednesday 28 February and Friday 9 March, Volunteers at our SeniorNet Learning Centres will be able to help people over 50 fill out the 2018 Census online. This facility is available to members and non members at no cost.


SeniorNet has organised session times for census completion as follows:

Weekdays 28 February to 5 March between 10 am and 2 pm
Saturday 3 March between 10 am to 5 pm
6 March (Census day) between 10 am and 5 pm

For the anybody who may have overlooked filling out their forms, SeniorNet facilities will be available on 7-9 March between 10 am and 12 noon.



Obituary - JEXI KEOWN

It is with great sadness and a real sense of loss that we learned that Jexi Keown passed away on Saturday afternoon, 28th January 2018.

Jexi became a member of SeniorNet Hutt City in February, 2004. Over the years she has attended or assisted with tutoring in most classes, often at short notice.

Jexi served on the committee from 2011 to 2017 and fulfilled the post of Student Coordinator with distinction. She was a very warm and a very real people person with a bubbly personality, a very friendly demeanour, always ready to welcome people, reassure them and put them at ease, always willing to help with whatever and in whatever way she could. She was a very dedicated and loyal member of SeniorNet, believing completely in our goals and mission.

Jexi will be sadly missed by committee, tutors and members but our lives are so much richer for having known her and sharing in so many things with her.

Many older people may feel they're being left behind by technology and the computer age.

SeniorNet brings older adults and computers together in a friendly, fun and stress-free way. It is for mature New Zealand residents (no age limit) who would like to learn more about computers and what they can do, from basic word-processing through to email and surfing the Net, and so much more.

The big feature of SeniorNet is peer tutoring. This is mature people helping people of the same age group to learn technology.
