Introducing Agnes Richardson, 91-year-old social media aficionado and
grandmother, who has just graduated from TAFE New England's Tamworth
Campus with her Certificate
II in Interactive Digital Media and Technology.
Staying in touch with her grandchildren via social media was the
principal reason Agnes gave for enrolling in the course, which she
hoped would improve her Social Media skills.
"Agnes is proof that you're never too old to study at TAFE New
England," her teacher, Max Collins, told the Northern Daily
Leader. "She enjoys keeping up-to-date with technology and the
classroom environment each week and her interaction with students who
are 70 years younger than her is nothing short of amazing."
Agnes is planning to continue her TAFE studies and has enrolled in
the Certificate III in Interactive Digital Media and Technology.
