Yesterday afternoon, Paula spent some time at Hastings District Libraries using the computers to hone her computing skills.

After writing a short story about feeling happy, Paula added 3 images and then with the help of the friendly staff at the library, Paula had her story printed in colour.

Paula, you nailed it!!!
