Boost your dig­i­tal skills

Wangaratta Chronicle - - What’s On | This Weekend -

PANGERANG Com­mu­nity House is set to help lo­cal res­i­dents im­prove their dig­i­tal skills through international cam­paign Get On­line Week.

The event, tak­ing place at both the Wan­garatta Farm­ers Mar­ket to­mor­row, and on Wed­nes­day from 10am to 3pm at Pangerang Com­mu­nity House, gives everyone the chance to make the most of the in­ter­net, no mat­ter how con­fi­dent they are on­line.

Get On­line Week (Oc­to­ber 15 to 21) will see hun­dreds of com­mu­nity events take place across the coun­try.

The cam­paign aims to sup­port the two and a half mil­lion Aus­tralians who are not on­line.

Ten­nille Hall, Pangerang Com­mu­nity House ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, said that more peo­ple than you prob­a­bly think still don’t use the in­ter­net at all, and with more and more com­pa­nies di­rect­ing peo­ple to on­line ser­vices, in­clud­ing gov­ern­ment sites such as MyGov, it can be in­cred­i­bly daunt­ing and frus­trat­ing for peo­ple.

“We are here to help,” she said.

“Get­ting the most out of the in­ter­net doesn’t have to be scary.

“Do­ing just one new thing on­line is all you need to do to get started - come along to our event and we can help you do just that.

“We’ll be hold­ing our Get On­line Week events at the Wan­garatta Farm­ers mar­ket to­mor­row in the grounds of Holy Trin­ity Cathe­dral.

“We will also have an­other open day at Pangerang Com­mu­nity House on Wed­nes­day from 10am to 3pm for any­one who would like to drop in.

“There’ll be lots of friendly sup­port for any­one who wants to start do­ing a bit more on­line - and it’s ab­so­lutely free.”
