‘Get Connected’ at Waddesdon Community Library
Feel Out of Touch? Would you like to brush up your computer skills?
Waddesdon Community Library has been proud to be involved with Get Connected, an award winning project to help improve computer skills. The sessions are run by our sixth form and KS4 students who will guide participants through the Learn My Way website, and help with any problems using devices.
Everyone involved has said that they have benefitted from the project, learning both computer skills and something about themselves along the way.
“It has improved my confidence and speaking skills massively…I have loved helping out in the community” Year 12 student.
“Get Connected has allowed me to take an active role within the community…(I) have loved watching my tutee learn and grow online” Year 12 student.
The ‘Get Connected’ project had been a very valuable part of my life and I am happy to share how important this project is and the value of the volunteering that I have taken part in. Year 10 student.
Community members’ comments
“a pleasant way to learn in a friendly atmosphere”
“I enjoyed (the course) and look forward to visiting the library in the future”
“I’m very impressed with the student working with older and slower people!”
Further Get Connected sessions are scheduled for September 2019, so please get in touch nearer the time for more details.
You don’t even have to leave the village to spend an evening at the cinema. Once a month we run a “Secret Cinema” night where members can view new and classic films for free! (Although a small donation to keep the library flourishing is always welcome.) Previous films have included The Lady in the Van, Florence Foster Jenkins and Dad’s Army. Please see the school diary or contact the Library to see when the next Secret Cinema night is!
