Bath pupils teach silver surfers
February 24 2011
Pensioners from Bath have been getting computer advice from local schoolchildren.
St Mark's School recently held a special community IT event, inviting silver surfers to use the school's IT facilities and pick up tips from youngsters, the Bath Chronicle reports.
Pensioner Jacky Tarrant, who lives in nearby Hanover Court, told the newspaper: "I have had a computer for a year but these young men have been explaining to me what all the symbols mean and what the different buttons do.
"Usually I am worried that if I click on the wrong thing then everything is going to be deleted, but they have been explaining to me about how to use the different programmes."
Year 8 student Bethany said she enjoyed working with older people and answering their questions.
In related news, it was reported this week that the Bath and North East Somerset Local Safeguarding Children Board has created an e-safety group aimed at helping young people to stay safe online.
