#GetOnlineWeek here at Beechtree Community Centre

Here at the Beechtree Community Centre this week, it was Get Online Week and we asked participants to try just one new thing, browsing the internet, setting up on line banking, asking a question on health and searching for the answers.

“Is it what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning?”
