Connecting dots of communication

Roxburgh residents are being urged to sign on the "dotted" line.

The town will host a Get Dotted communications course tomorrow, following the success of similar evenings in Ranfurly and Alexandra last year.

The programme is based on a corporate model of communication training and the evening will be followed up with a three-day youth course for senior pupils at Roxburgh Area School, titled "What I didn't learn at 15 but wish I had".

The course is run by communication training specialist Amy Scott, of Alexandra, in conjunction with Central Otago Victim Support.

Ms Scott said the feedback after the first two courses in Central Otago was positive.

"We've been asked to host another Get Dotted evening in Alexandra and also to run one in Queenstown and Balclutha," Ms Scott said.

The programme is based on Dickson's Dots, developed by David Dickson, of Christchurch.

The aim was clearer communication, she said.

The proceeds from ticket sales during the show will be used to fund the follow-up course for the district's teenagers.
