Parramatta Computer Pals for Seniors

A non-profit organisation offering a wide variety of technology classes conducted in small groups
by seniors and for seniors.

During the current COVID lockdown we have suspended  face to face classes at our Club Training Room.    We continue to offer  support and training via Zoom in Term 3 2021.

Seniors Learning to Use Computers

Who Are We?

We are a friendly and inclusive club run entirely by a dedicated group of volunteer seniors. We cater to absolute beginners through to more experienced students, both in Parramatta and beyond. Courses cover a range of technology including computers,  smart phones and tablets.  We can help with programs such as Word, Excel and email, social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter, and interests such as genealogy and digital photography.

Some of the Parramatta Computer Pals Members

Our Members

Our members range in age from 55 through to learners well into their eighties. Some face the challenges of dealing with poor vision, hearing loss or deteriorating mobility but don’t allow these conditions to be a barrier to their learning. With a maximum of four students per class, we provide a fun and caring environment in which to build your skills. Our patient and supportive trainers are there to ensure every student can learn at their own pace.

Our Classes

Parramatta Computer Pals for Seniors, affectionately known as ParraPals, welcomes all senior residents of Parramatta as well as any other seniors who can travel to our central location above the Parramatta Library or participate online via Zoom.

Our low-cost courses range in duration from two hours through to six hours, spread over one to three weeks.

In addition, we convene several User Groups and Special Interest Groups for members who wish to meet up regularly to continue developing their skills in a specific area. We also run events throughout the year which provide members with opportunities to relax and socialise in an informal setting.

Join ParraPals today and discover the world of fun, entertainment, convenience and communication that technology can bring to your life.
