About Hamilton SeniorNet

The idea of creating centres or clubs where seniors could learn computer skills was born out of a study in “Communicating with the Elderly” by Dr Mary Furlong at the University of San Fransisco in 1986.

Telecom introduced the idea to New Zealand, opening the first club in 1992. The Hamilton SeniorNet was started on 1st July 1997. We are autonomous with regard to curriculum and financial management with our own constitution.

However we do liaise with sister clubs under the umbrella of the Federation of New Zealand SeniorNet Societies Inc.

Our mission is to impart computer skills to Seniors in a friendly forum, bearing in mind that some of us have never experienced the computer world, and have different speeds of learning.
