Seniors’ chance to get tech-savvy
SENIOR supporters of the West Coast Eagles, such as Anne McKimmie and Ellaine Summers, are benefitting from the club’s partnership with the Seniors Recreation Council of WA.
The club recently hosted a Tech Savvy Seniors course, designed to break down barriers that seniors can have with technology, as part of the Eagles in the Prime program.
“It’s not technical training, it just helps them become familiar with technology,” SRCWA project manager Martin Yates said.
“We cover things such as how to spot scams and how to navigate websites.”
Mrs Summers said enrolling in the course gave her confidence to tackle the Census online.
Mrs McKimmie said Eagles in their Prime give her an opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills.
“I have been coming to Eagles games with my son since he was 10,” she said.
“He’s now 30 and it’s still something we do together. These events give me a chance to meet other members and also get the grandkids involved.”
Community Newspaper Group is an affiliated partner of the West Coast Eagles.
