We currently operate at Dee Why RSL, The Meehan Room, Level 1, Dee Why until such time as the renovations at The Tramshed, Narrabeen are completed. Students are required to bring their own devices such as laptops, iPads, Android tablets and smartphones.

We are constantly revising and extending the list of apps and special interests we teach. Our original purpose is to teach enough of the "basics" to enable people to start using their computers/devices effectively. The world doesn't stand still and technology moves at an incredible pace. Computer Pals for Seniors Northern Beaches doesn't stand still either and change is happening on a weekly basis.

1. How it works and how to look after it

2. Use of the more common apps
How to use the apps that are included with the operating systems - email and Internet Browsers and Search Engines and those that are included in the Microsoft Office suite - Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
