You are never too old to learn

Pictured is Mrs Doris Williamson from Toko, who at the age of 91, is currently learning computing at SeniorNet Stratford.

Mrs Williamson was a librarian at the National Library in Wellington for twenty years. In 1984, she retired to Newtown, and in the late 1990’s, moved to Toko to be near to her family.At the age of 91, she decided to learn to use a computer “to keep up with the rest of the family.” She came to SeniorNet Stratford in February 2011, and completed the Introduction to computers course in Term 1. Currently, at the end of Term2, she has nearly completed the Communications course, and her Tutor has remarked that she is doing very well.

Mrs Williamson intends to do another course in the near future and is an inspiration to us all. She really does prove “That you are never too old to learn.”
