(I found a number of personal messages for me in there!!! Oops but glad I found them :-)
Penny & Lynn learnt how to make basic web pages (using Word or FrontPage), link them together and add them to the school intranet.

Lynn would also like to be able to use the Intranet to direct teachers to relevant resources either online or on the school network.
Had lengthy discussions with Penny about server requirements, network structure & desktop configuration as we examine a couple of quotes for a much needed server replacement. Liaised with IT providers & Douglas from MOE about these server specifications & quotes - won’t go into details here…
I supervised Holly’s) first exam (our DigiOp technician – all done online, submitted and marked right away – 100% and it took her 10 minutes!! Well done – obviously been studying hard.
