Website: www.rutherford.school.nz Fun for the whole family! Rutherford s free 2011 Community Education West Auckland booklet is out now in super- markets, libraries and Community Houses near you, so grab a copy and plan your learning pro- gramme for the New Year - there s a heap of options. An exciting innovation for the 2011 programme is the introduction of a wide range of family- friendly courses. These are designed for a parent or caregiver accompanied by a child or children 13 years or older. There are so many advantages to learning in this way. Your family bonds are strengthened by study- ing together, and your learning is reinforced as you discuss and review the new material between classes. Children are intro- duced early to the merits of life-long learning and given the opportunity to try learning styles that might differ from those used at day school. As TV s Dr Phil says, the most powerful role model in any child s life is the same-sex parent, and being engaged with your child s learning can really help you find com- mon ground during the difficult teenage years. Flicking though the booklet you ll easily spot the little family motif that helps you identify these courses, and they can be found in each sub- ject area of the adult education curriculum. There are hands-on crafty courses like jewel- lery making, Maori carv- ing, mosaics, pottery and slip casting, or sewing. For active families who love the beach Sculpt n Stretch, NZ day skipper or surfing will appeal, while others will enjoy CAD, design your own website, Photo- shop or web program- ming. There s nothing more family-friendly than sit- ting down to a good meal together, especially one you ve prepared your- selves. Get your blokes in the kitchen to start baking home-made favourites or breads and dips, and after your kids have done Cooking with Kids you can turn them onto Healthy Family Cooking and Vegetarian Cooking . Once you ve aced those you could do the food hygiene certificate together and open a fam- ily restaurant! So whether your inter- ests run to languages -- Mandarin, Samoan, Te Reo Maori, English for Pasifika families; per- sonal appearance -- soap making, hair styling, makeup for mums and daughters; or gardening -- caring for herbs, gardening basics or the edible garden; with all your old favourites, 37 brand new courses, a teen programme, a com- prehensive ESOL selec- tion and the new family programme, there is something for everyone.
