As part of a national campaign, Parkwood Academy has been supporting parents, students and local residents to get more confident in using the Internet.
Parkwood Academy launched a project using its young people as teachers and their family members as the students. This is what Michail’s mother, Jelena thought of the class taught by her son:
“I really enjoyed going to the computer class at Parkwood Academy. I have learnt many new things. I have been working on Microsoft Power Point, Word and Publisher. Coming into The Academy to use the computers has been good because our computer at home does not have as many programs.
“I also learned how to use Google Maps and find places. If I need to find somewhere and am not quite sure where it is, I can look it up and print it off. This course has also helped me improve my English.
“I wish there were more classes where children can help parents and learn together.”
