    Event description

    Tech Savvy Seniors

    Do you know someone who needs assistance with learning basic everyday technology skills? 
    Book in for a Tech Savvy Senior Session hosted by Year 11 Students from St Marist Catholic College Penshurst.

    The program was developed with a need to support the elderly with technology particularly during the pandemic when most of the world went digital at such a short notice. 

    St Marist Catholic College Penshurst supports this activity by having students who are well versed with technology give up their sport/study time to help the wider community with their devices. This is almost purely student led as they are the ones to lead the sessions with presenting the topics or helping those who need it. The program whilst called Tech Savvy Seniors, is targeted at anyone old or young you may need assistance with any device they may have.
